If the offer is not for value and is not under seal, the death of the offeree is said to cause the offer to lapse, on the ground that such offer is personal to the offeree and that his heirs can not accept.1 Whether an offer for value or under seal is to be regarded as irrevocable, or as a contract on the part of the offeror not to revoke the offer, the right of the offeree to accept such offer is one which should not be regarded as purely personal; but as one which will not lapse by reason of the death of the offeree. The greater number of cases take this view of the question.2 It has been said, however, that if an offer under seal is made by its terms to the offeree without adding the words "or his heirs," such offer can not be accepted by anyone upon the death of the offeree.3 The reason given by the court is that such option was personal, and that it was neither a chose in action nor a transmissible right of property; and further, that if the administrator were to exercise such option he would convert personal property into realty for the benefit of the heirs.
