Voluntary Courtesy
Last updated: 06-Oct-2014

Lampleigh v Brathwait (1615) Hobart, 105:

…a mere voluntary courtesy will not have a consideration to uphold an assumpsit. But if that courtesy were moved by a suit or request of the party that gives the assumpsit, it will bind; for the promise, though it follows, yet it is not naked, but couples itself with the suit before, and the merits of the party procured by that suit, which is the difference.
