One hundred pounds was to be paid as a reward to any people who fulfilled the conditions of the advertisement, using the smoke ball     19 according to the directions who were not cured of their influenza or cold. The advertisement stated that one thousand pounds was lodged at the Bank for this purpose. Mrs Carlill purchased a smoke ball. She claimed to have used it as directed, but was not cured of her ailment. She contacted the company seeking the advertised reward. After the company refused to pay her the reward, Mrs Carlill sued for breach of contract. The company put forward multiple arguments as to why there was no contract between

them and Mrs Carlill. The defendants contended that: 1) ‘... the advertisement is rather in the nature of a puff or a proclamation rather than a promise or offer intended to mature into a contract when accepted’ 2) ‘... the vagueness of the document shows that no contract whatever was intended’ 3) ‘... one cannot enter into a contract with the whole world’ 4) ‘... there was no check on the part of the persons who issued the advertisement, and it would be an insensate thing to promise 100 pounds to a person who used the smoke ball unless you could check or superintend his manner of using it’ Held: The advertisement was an offer made to the world, and that if people performed conditions of the advertisement, then a contract was formed.

    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.
