Krell v. Henry
Citation:2 K.B. 740 (1903)
The plaintiff on leaving the country in March, 1902, left instructions with his solicitor to let his suite of chambers at 56A, Pall Mall. On June 17, 1902, the defendant noticed an announcement in the windows of the plaintiff’s flat to the effect that windows to view the coronation processions were to be let. He eventually agreed with the housekeeper to take the suite for the two days for a sum of £75. The processions not having taken place on June 26 and 27, the defendant declined to pay the balance of £50 alleged to be due from him under the contract. The plaintiff brought the action.
