Eliason v. Henshaw

Eliason sent an offer on the 14th from Georgetown to Henshaw and required acceptance to be by wagon to Harper’s Ferry. Henshaw actually replied by regular carriage mail to Georgetown on the 19th and Eliason rejected this stating the response was too late, then Henshaw sued him. It was held that there was no acceptance because the contract was not acceptance within the proper time, right place nor correct manner. It also came later than expected. The offeree must follow the terms stipulated by the offeror to create binding acceptance.
