Hi, need to submit a 2000 words paper on the topic Casestudy. The English Law of contract is clear on the fact that any agreement that is enforceable in a court of law is considered a contract. Offer and acceptance are some of the most important features of a contract (Collins, 2003). In this particular case, one party makes an offer for a certain arrangement, and the other party accepts the terms of the arrangement. Neither offer nor acceptance has to be made through writing or through making oral statements. This type of contract is referred to as an implied contract in which certain terms are not expressed or explained in words (National Archives, 2010). This seems to be the kind of agreement that Eddie had with Adele. Once he ordered for his piglets, Adele expected him to accept and pay for the services rendered. Adele has every right to demand for compensation from Eddie, who had made it clear in his communication that he would get the piglets for Eddie. In the Smith v. Hughes 1871 LR 6 QB 597 case, one cannot go against a contract at will (Young, 2010). Before Eddie met his second supplier, he had intended to honour his agreement with Adele because it was a business agreement. However, just because he found a cheap alternative, he disregarded his earlier agreement with Adele.
