Richardson v. Hardwick

Decided November 27, 1882

106 U.S. 252


A., the owner of lands, covenanted that by making certain payments within a period named, B. might become equally interested in them. B. did not agree to purchase, and he never made any payment. Held that an estate in the lands was not by the contract vested in B., and that his failure to make payment within the time limited therefor worked a forfeiture of his privilege under the contract.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
