Charged with a load or cargo; burdened or oppressed, as with a load. Note.-"When we view an object already provided with a load so as to fix our attention on its present condition rather than the process by which that condition was brought about, the object is laden; when we look at the process of laying on a load, rather than its effect of leaving another object laden, the participle is loaded."-Lathem. We say "a loaded gun," but "a laden ship," and "laden with death".
