Abstract

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."
