AMERICAN LAWYER.

AGREEMENTS.

An agreement or contract is the mutual consent of two or more persons respecting anything done or to be done.

When reduced to writing, the memorandum or articles containing the agreement, signed by the parties thereto, is usually called an agreement.

It is advisable, in all cases, to reduce the agreements and contracts of parties to writing; not only because, in case of dispute, the instrument is a more reliable and satisfactory source of evidence than the memory of witnesses, but be. cause, by statute, many agreements are void unless put into writing and subscribed by the party to be charged.

But care must be taken to put the whole and exact contract in writing, as verbal evidence will not be admitted to alter or vary a written instrument. If erasures or interiineations are made, the fact should be stated on the paper, that they were so done before the parties signed it.

In all agreements or contracts there must be a consideration flowing from the promisor to the promisee, such as the payment of money, the sale and delivery of property--something whereby the promisee is benefited or the promisor puc to inconvenience; and this consideration should be expressed.

Contracts which militate against the public good can not be enforced as a contract not to exercise one's trade or calling at all, a contract to erect a public nuisance, &c.

It is understood, in every contract for work or labor, that it shall be executed in a suitable and workmanlike manner, whether it is so expressed in the contract or not.

If it is desired by both parties to an agreement to waive the performance of a part of it, let it be so endorsed on the back of the agreement, and signed by the party who so consents to waive it.

The law of the state where the contract is made regulates the construction of the contract; the law of the state where the contract is sought to be enforced regulates the remedy.

Amounts and dates should always be written out, and not expressed in figures : thus, two thousand dollars, instead of $2,000.

The words in italics, and names in capitals, are merely inserted to show how the forms may be filled out. They should be always omitted in drawing a paper, and such words inserted as correspond with the facts in hand, and the actua. agreement of the parties.

Fraud destroys every contract into which it enters.
