U.S. Supreme Court

Hill v. Sumner, 132 U.S. 118 (1889)

Hill v. Sumner

No. 783

Submitted October 21, 1889

Decided November 11, 1889

132 U.S. 118


When a contract respecting property contains an agreement to be performed by the owner of it when he shall "dispose of or sell it," it is obvious that the words "dispose of" are not synonymous with the word "sell," and their meaning must be determined by considering the remainder of the contract.

In this case, an agreement by the owner of the property which formed the subject of the dispute that he would not dispose of or sell it was held to have been violated by a lease of it for a term of two years.

In contract. Verdict for the plaintiff, and judgment on the verdict. The defendant sued out this writ of error. The case is stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
