William E. Story agree to pay his nephew, William E. Story II, a large sum of money (roughly equivalent to $50,000 in 207 dollars) “if he would refrain from drinking liquor, using tobacco, swearing, and playing cards or billiards for money until he should come to be 21 years of age.” William II had been using tobacco and occaasionally drank liquor but refrained from using these stimulants over several years until he was 21 and also lived up to the other requirements of his uncle’s offer. Just after william II’s 21st birthday, Story acknoweledged that William II had fulfilled his part of the bargain and adcised that the money would be invested for him with interest. Story died, and his executor, Sidway, refused to pay William II because he believed the contract betwewn Story and William II was without consideration. Sidway¬†¬†asserted tht Story received no benefit from William II’s performance and William II suffered no detriment (in fact, by his refraining from the use of liquor and tobacco, William II was not harmed but benefited, Sidway asserted). Is there any theory of consideration that William II can rely on? How would you decide this case?
