Today in History: Lonergan Writes a Letter

Aab_15 On this date, April 7, 1954, Joseph A. Lonergan of New York wrote to Albert Scolnick regarding 40 acres of land near Joshua Tree, California.  It was only one step in a longer correspondence that would eventually raise the issue whether describing land and stating that your "rock-bottom" price for selling it is $2,500 amounts to an offer to sell.  The case, in several casebooks, is Lonergan v. Scolnick.
