OF CONTRACTS, AGREEMENTS, AND COVE.

NANTS.

PRACTICAL REMARKS.

[ocr errors][ocr errors]

A contract is an agreement upon sufficient considera. tion, to do or not to do, a particular thing.

Contracts by our laws, are distinguished into agreements by specialty, made by instrument under seal, and agreements without specialty, made by instrument without seal or by parol.

Agreements by specialty, are generally of higher con. sideration in the law, than agreements without specialty ; and it is therefore advisable, in contracts, to add a seal.

There is no difference in effect, between an agreement in writing without seal, and by parol, except that the former, can be more easily proved, and is therefore always to be preferred.

In a few cases however, the law requires, that the contract should be put in writing, and signed, to make it binding, as

1. All contracts conveying lands or any interest in them.

2. Agreements not to be performed in one year from the making of them.

3. Agreements made upon consideration of marriage.

4. Promises to answer for the debt, default, or miscar. riage, of another person :

5. Or to charge an executor or administrator to answer damages out of his own estate and

6. Contracts for the sale of goods to the amount of $25 when there is no delivery or payment, and no earnest giv. en to bind the bargain ; but any sum however small will be sufficient earnest.
