The verb hire applies to both persons and property, but is appropriately used to designate the act of an employer, tenant, or bailee who engages some person or thing by a promise to pay hire. Let applies only to property, and only to the act of the owner or lessor. Rent and lease apply only to property, but are used indifferently of the act of the owner or lessor and that of the tenant. Charter is used only of vessels (and colloquially of railroad-cars and -engines), but is used appropriately of the act of the hirer, not that of the lessor, unless so indicated by the context. See employ.
