Within the ten-day examination period and while Vincent was examining the property, Well Oil Co. advised him that it would sell the land only for an advanced price, which was considerably higher than the first price mentioned. After making an examination at considerable expense, Vincent decided to take the land on the terms first stated and notified Well Oil Co. within the ten-day period that he accepted those terms.

Pinder made an offer to Young as follows: "I offer to sell you 150 shares of U.S. Steel. It closed yesterday at $170.

    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.
