The peculiar nature of certain contracts may make the dissolution of a corporation which is a party thereto operate as a discharge of such contract, although such dissolution would not operate as a discharge of ordinary contracts; e. g., a contract which is personal in its nature,1 such as a grant to a corporation of the right to charge a special rate of fare.2 If a corporation has employed an attorney at an annual salary under a contract by which such salary may be terminated at the will of either party, the appointment of a receiver for such corporation operates as a discharge of such contract.3
