Plaintiff left the country and rented out his flat during this period. On June 17, 1902, Defendant noticed an announcement in the window of Plaintiff’s flat stating that it was available with windows to view the coronation processions. Defendant asked Plaintiff’s housekeeper about the view, confirming the view of the procession area, and agreed to rent the flat for two days for 75 pounds. On June 20, 1902, Defendant wrote a letter to Plaintiff confirming the details of their agreement, with 25 pounds enclosed and the remaining 50 pounds to be paid in a couple of days. That same day, Defendant received a reply from Plaintiff which confirmed the agreement. However, the coronation processions did not take place on the days it was supposed to.
