The American Law Institute has tentatively adopted the two
following general rules:
"A gift promise in a contract creates a duty of the promisor
to the donee beneficiary to perform the promise. This duty can
be enforced by the donee beneficiary for his own benefit."
"A promise to discharge the promisee's duty [to another
person] creates a duty of the promisor to the creditor beneficiary
to perform the promise."
