Sec. 64. Necessity Of Acceptance

Acceptance of an offer is necessary to create a simple contract, since it takes two to make a bargain. An offer to contract is a proposal to exchange a promise or an act for a specified promise or act of another, and obviously requires the latter's assent in order that the transaction shall be complete. Moreover, the so-called acceptance of the offeree is frequently more than an acceptance, it is also a giving of the consideration' requested by the offer by the same words or acts which indicate assent.
