Objective “meeting of mind” Lucy v. Zehmer (1954) – Note via napkin for Ferguson Farm. “ Mutual assent to form a contract must be apparent from an objective point of view .” Harvey v. Facey (1893) - “Will you sell us Bumper Hall Pen? Telegraph cash price – answer paid.” Facey replied “Lowest price for Bumper Hall Pen” is 900 pounds. On the same day, Facey replied “We agree to buy Bumper Hall Pen for the sum of nine hundred pounds asked by you. Please send us your title deed in order that we may get early possession.” “ Offer is a communication to the offeree that clearly indicates offeror’s present, clear willingness to enter into a contract ” “ May rely on Harvey, stating there was ambiguous terms. Lefkowitz v. Great Minneapolis Surplus store (1957)- Fur coats advertisements, with “house rules” Fairmount Glass Works v. Crunden-Martin Wooden Ware Co. (1899) - Mason’s green jar. It was labeled as a quote, but was specific enough to be an offer. Store properties v. Neal – It was a letter of intent. But it did not establish enough specific terms. Paragraph 8 states “Terms and conditions of the lease not covered by this proposal shall be subject to the approval of both parties.” Kuzmeskus v. Pickup Motor Co. - About the city accepting a bid on school transportation. The contractor that got it accepted went to Pickup Motor Co. and talked to their general manager and sales rep. There was no indication of an acceptance by an officer by the time the contractor called to cancel his order (the next morning).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
