Plaintiffs and defendants are neighbors owning adjoining lots. Defendants sent a letter to plaintiff and other neighbors offering to sell them some parcels of the land. The letter was not signed by defendant but his name was typewritten. Plaintiff and defendant discussed the latter’s intent of acquiring the property for the neighborhood on at least two occasions. On August 14, plaintiff delivered to his attorney a check for $262 payable to defendants for the purpose of completing the sale. On August 16, plaintiff’s attorney wrote defendant informing him that he held the check for payment of the sale price to be delivered on receipt of a deed. Plaintiff then received a letter from defendant dated August 16 informing that the offer to sell was revoked. Defendants contend that there was no valid and enforceable contract for the sale of land.
