General Rules[edit | edit source]

See generally Conflict of Laws.

A contract is governed as to its intrinsic validity and effect by the law with reference to which the parties intended, or fairly may be presumed to have intended, to contract,[1] the real place of the contract being a matter of mutual intention, except in exceptional circumstances evincing a purpose in making the contract to commit a fraud on the law.[2] This law governs not only as to the execution, authentication, and construction of the contract, but also as to the legal obligations arising from it, and as to what is to be deemed a performance, satisfaction, or discharge.[3] The intention of the parties may be either expressed or implied from their acts and conduct at the time of making the contract.[4] Parties to a contract may contract with reference to the laws of any state or country, if they have a substantial connection with the subject matter.[5]

Place of contract[edit | edit source]

For Construction of contract as to place where made see Place of Making.

The act of the parties in entering into a contract at a particular place, in the absence of anything shown to the contrary, sufficiently indicates their intention to contract with reference to the laws of that place; hence the rule, as it is usually stated, that a contract as to its validity and interpretation is governed by the law of the place where it is made—-the lex loci contractus,[6] or, more accurately, that contracts to be governed as to their nature, validity, and interpretation by the law of the place where they made, unless the contracting parties clearly appear to have had some other place in view.[7] The presumption recognized by these statements, that the proper law of the contract is the law of the country where the contract is made, applies with special force when the contract is to be performed wholly in the country where it is made, or may be performed anywhere; but it may apply to a contract partly or even wholly to be performed in another country.[8]

Place of performance[edit | edit source]

When the contract is made in one country and is to be performed either wholly or partly in another, the proper law of the contract, especially as to the mode of performance, may be presumed to be the law of the country where performance is to take place, the lex loci solutionis.[9] This rule yields to a contrary intent of the parties,[1] although it has been said that, "to show that the parties did not intend the place of performance to be the place of the contract, when void at the place of performance, it must clearly appear that they intended to be governed by the law of the place where . . . [the contract] was made."[10]

Neither place of contract nor place of performance controlling[edit | edit source]

Neither the place where the contract is made nor the place at which it is to be performed is conclusive as to the law by which the parties intended the contract to be governed,[11] but both are merely important indicia of such fact.[12]

Performance in several states[edit | edit source]

While in numerous cases an entire contract to be performed partly in the state where made and partly in another state has been held to be governed by the law of the place of making,[13] and there are other decisions to the effect that each portion is to be governed by the laws of the state in which that portion is performed,[14] the better rule would seem to be that the presumed intention of the parties, gathered from the attending circumstances, is to be taken as controlling.[15]

Interstate commerce[edit | edit source]

A federal court has refused to apply the law of the state where a contract was made in determining the validity of a contract held by it to relate to interstate commerce,[16] and has held that the validity of a contract in interstate commerce made by a state corporation is not determined by the law of the state, but by general law, and that if any statute applies it must be federal.[16]

Place of enforcement[edit | edit source]

Matters relating to the remedies on contracts are governed by the law of the forum without regard to where the contract is made or is to be performed.[17]

Domicile of parties[edit | edit source]

The law of the domicile of the party does not necessarily govern the contract or determine their rights or obligations. The question is where was it made or where was it to be performed, as the case may be.[18]

Express provision in contract[edit | edit source]

Where the parties have expressly provided that the contract shall be governed by the law of a particular country, this intention will as a rule be carried out by the courts,[19] and a party is bound by his choice.[20] "Parties may substitute the laws of another place or country, than that where the contract is entered into, both in relation to the legality and extent of the original obligation, and in relation to the respective rights of the parties, for a breach or violation of its terms."[21] This is part of the jus gentium (Latin for "law of nations"), and is enforced ex comitate (out of comity or courtesy), when the enforcement of the contract is sought in the courts of a country governed by a different rule than the local or adopted law of the contract.[22]

Implied provision in contract[edit | edit source]

The contract may impliedly prescribe the law. Where the intention is not expressed, it is to be inferred from the terms and nature of the contract and the general circumstances of the case, and such inferred intention determines the proper law of the contract.[23]

Comity basis of all rules[edit | edit source]

Contracts made in a foreign jurisdiction are recognized and enforced be­cause of comity, but not as a matter of right.[24] Since the law of one state has, proprio vigore, no force or authority beyond the jurisdiction of its own courts,[25] comity is overruled by positive law,[26] and it is left to each state or nation to say how far it will be recognized, and to what extent it will be permitted to control its own laws,[27] but in some instances the enforcement of a foreign contract,[28] or the recognition of the lex loci contractus,[29] has been regarded as a matter of common justice.

Fact of Agreement[edit | edit source]

The question whether in fact an agreement has been entered into is to be determined by the law of the place where the parties were at the time the alleged agreement was entered into, and not by the law of the place where it is attempted to enforce the agreement.[30] Such a question does not relate to the remedy; nor is it a question of procedure or evidence relating to the remedy.[31]

Capacity of Parties[edit | edit source]

The capacity of the parties to make a contract is as a general rule to be determined by the law of the place where the contrnct is entered into.[32] This rule yields, however, to the rule requiring contracts relating to realty to be governed by the law of the place where the realty is situated,[33] and to the general rules relating to comity in the enforcement of foreign contracts.[34] Questions as to a conflict of laws arising from particular incapacities of the parties to a contract is not within the scope of this article.

Form and Execution[edit | edit source]

The lex loci contractus also governs as to the form of the contract,[35] and as to its execution and acknowledgment.[36]

Revenue stamps[edit | edit source]

The better doctrine seems to be that, where an unstamped instrument is declared to be void by the lex loci contractus, it will be void everywhere,[37] unless the foreign statute simply renders such instrument, when unstamped, inadmissible in evidence, when the statute will have no extraterritorial effect.[38] In some jurisdictions, however, the rule is laid down that domestic courts will not take notice of the revenue laws of foreign countries, and therefore that a contract will be enforced in such forum, although invalid for want of proper stamps in the country wnere it was entered into.[39]

Legality[edit | edit source]

General Rules[edit | edit source]

The validity of the contract, that is, the question whether the contract is a legal or an illegal one, is judged by the law on the subject in the state or eountry in which the contract is entered into, the general rule being that a contract good where made is good everywhere, and that a contract invalid where made is invalid everywhere.[40] Exceptions to this rule are recognized where the parties clearly appear to have contracted with reference to the law of another jurisdiction,[41] this being particularly true as to matters relating to performance,[42] or where the contract is to be performed in another jurisdiction.[43] There are, however, decisions to the contrary, that is, to the effect that, no matter where the contract is to be performed, its legality must be determined by the law of the place of making;[44] and it has been held that, where a contract is declared void by the law of the state or country where it is made, it cannot be enforced as a valid contract in any other, although by its terms it was to have been performed there.[45] A contract made in contravention of the statutory regulations of a state and unenforceable in its courts is not ipso facto void elsewhere; but if extraterritorial effect is given to the state interdicts, it is on principles of comity.[46] Conversely, a contract valid where made, while valid everywhere, may not be enforceable everywhere,[47] cases of this charaeter not being, strictly speaking, exceptions to the general rule as to validity.[48]

Agreements Contrary to Good Morals[edit | edit source]

The courts of a country or state are not bound to, and will not, enforce contracts which offend public morals, no matter where they are made.[49]

Agreements Injurious to the State or Its Citizens[edit | edit source]

Where the state or its citizens would be injured its courts will refuse to enforce the agreement.[50] This rule, it would seem, must be invoked by the state or a citizen thereof.[51]

Agreements Contrary to Constitution or Legislation of State[edit | edit source]

Where the contract vio­lates the positive legislation of the state, that is, where it is contrary to ita constitution or statutes, it will not be enforced.[52] The cases under this head are usually connected with those under the next exception, for the reason that the public policy of the state is so frequently expressed in its legislation.[53] In some decisions it is said that the contract may be enforced if not immoral,[54] and that the enforcement of the local statute must be invoked by,[55] and necessary for the protection of,[55] a resident of the state.

Agreements Contrary to Public Policy[edit | edit source]

Where the agreement is one which violates the fixed public policy of the state where the action is brought it will not be enforced.[56] The rule is not affected by the fact that the objectionable parts of the contract have been executed and that those re­maining are innocuous.[57] A contract is not necessarily contrary to the public policy of a state merely because it could not validly have been made there; nor is it one to which comity will not be extended merely because the making of such contracts in the place of the forum is prohibited.[58]

Agreements Relating to Realty[edit | edit source]

The lex rei sitæ--the law of the place in which the property is--controls the title to, and the alienation and transfer of, land, and the effect and construction which is to be accorded to agreements intending to convey or otherwise to deal with it,[59] the most frequent application of this rule being to decds, mortgages assignments for creditors, and agreements for sale. Where in the performance of a contract conveyances and transfers of property situated in several states are to be made, such conveyances and transfers must be made in accordance with the law of the place where the particular property is situated.[60]

Agreements Relating to Personalty[edit | edit source]

The situs of personal property is by a fiction of law regarded, in the absence of anything requiring the application of the law of actual situs, as that of the domicile of the owner, which law ordinarily governs contracts relating to personalty.[61] Hence as to a contract in relation to personal property situated at the date thereof in a foreign jurisdiction, the lex loci contractus will ordinarily govern.[62] But there is much conflict of authority on the question of how far a transfer of personal property, lawful in the owner's domicile, will be respected in the court of the country where the property is located and a different rule of transfer prevails.[63] The questions usually arise with reference to chattel mortgages, conditional sales, assignments for creditors, and assignments. There is no absolute right to have such a transfer respected, and it is only allowed on a principle of comity,[64] which must yield when the legislation of the state in which the property happens to be has prescribed a different rule.[65]

Carriage of Goods[edit | edit source]

The intent, obligation, and interpretation of a contract of carriage made in one state or country between citizens or residents thereof, and the performance of which begins in that country, is to be governed by the law thereof unless the parties when entering into the contract clearly manifest a mutual intention that it shall be governed by the law of some other country;[66] and this rule applies, although delivery of the goods is to be in another state.[67] For example, the validity of a limitation of the carrier's liability has been held to be governed by the law of the place where the contract is made;[68] but the courts will not enforce a limitation of liability contained in a foreign contract where the permission of such limitation is regarded as against the public policy of the forum.[69] In some cases, however, it has been held that such requirements of the contract as are to be wholly performed in the state of the forum are to be governed by the law of that state,[70] and there is also authority to the effect that the contract should be construed by the state where the negligent breach causing the injury oecurs.[71]

Defenses[edit | edit source]

A defense or discharge which is good by the law of the place where the contract is made or is to be performed is of equal validity wherever the question may be litigated.[72] It is a well-settled principle that, if a party is justified as to a transaction in the country where it took place, he is justified everywhere.[73] Thus if the defense of infancy is valid by the lex loci contractus it is good wherever the contract may be sued on.[74] And so it is of the defense of tender or payment.[75] But the defense must go to the contract and not to the remedy.[76]

Presumptions[edit | edit source]

The presumption is that a conttact is governed by the law of the forum.[77] The courts will not take judicial notice of the unwritten law of a foreign state, nor of the statutes of another state or territory, nor of the written laws of a foreign country; but in the absence of proof on the subject, they will generally presume that the common law is in force in such state, and the law of the foreign state, if different, must be pleaded and proved.[78] When, however, the common law has never been in force in the plaee where the contract was made, and the foreign law is not proved, the court will follow the law of the forum.[79] If the contract is void by the lex fori, it devolves on the party seeking to sustain it to show that it is valid by the law of the place of making,[80] although in Illinois it has been held that a contract will be presumed lawful where made.[81] On the other hand if the contract is legal by the lex fori, it will be presumed legal by the lex loci contractus.[82] When the contract is silent on the subject, the place of the making of the contract is presumed to be the place of performance.[83] In the absence of evidence to the contrary, the place of performance, the laws of which govern the validity of a contract, is presumed to be the place of the common domicile of the parties.[84] A contract good according to the law either of the place of contract or of performance will be presumed to have been made in view of the law of that place where it would be good.[85] But this presumption is rebutted by the fact that the parties intend that the contract shall be governed by the law of a particular state,[86] although it is not rebutted by the mere fact that the parties have in mind a particular state for the place of performance.[87] When the parties agree that the contract shall be governed by the laws of a particular place they are conclusively presumed to have known such law.[88]

Remedies[edit | edit source]

General Rules[edit | edit source]

Th remedy on a contract both in substance and form is regulated by the lex fori, and not by the lex loci contractus,[89] even where the contract was to be performed in the place where it was made.[90] A contract made in a foreign country or state, but to be wholly performed in the place where it is sought to be enforced, is governed in all respects by the law of the forum.[91] This rule must be confined to the remedies and does not apply to the rights arising under the contract.[92] The lexi fori governs in determining the mode of trial, including the form of pleading and the mode of redress.[93] Questions as to the admissibility and effect of evidence relate to the remedy and are to be determined by the lex fori;[94] this rule extends also to presumptions[95] and burden of proof.[96]

Particular Matters Affecting Remedy[edit | edit source]

Statutes of Limitations[edit | edit source]

Statutes of limitations, unless they discharge the debt, go merely to the remedy, and questions arising under them are to be determined by the law of the forum. And this rule applies to actions on foreign judgments or to those of courts of record of sister states as well as to actions on conventional contracts. But if the statute has run its course in the jurisdiction where the contract was made, and its effect there is to extinguish the obligation, this goes to the right and not merely to the remedy; and no action can thereafter be maintained on the contract in another jurisdiction. The validity of a contract limiting the time for bringing action is governed by the law of the forum.[97] In some states, by express statutory provision, foreign statutes of limitation may be pleaded.

Exemption Laws[edit | edit source]

Exemption laws are considered as statutes affecting the remedy only, and have no extraterritorial force. Questions of exemption, therefore, are to be determined solely by the laws of the forum.

Discharge in Bankruptcy or Insolvency[edit | edit source]

In an action on a contract defendant cannot set up as a defense a discharge under the bankruptcy or iosolvency laws of another state or country, unless the debt was created within the jurisdiction of the court granting the discharge, or unless the creditor voluntarily submitted himself to the jurisdiction of such court. A discharge under the Federal Bankruptcy Law, however, is available in any state.

Protection from Civil Arrest[edit | edit source]

The lex fori, and not the lex loci contractus, applies in regard to defendant's protection from arrest on civil process, inasmuch as such arrest is of the remedy and not of the right.

Whether Instrument Is a Specialty[edit | edit source]

The remedy on a contract under seal, and the ques­tion whether a contract is under seal, are determined by the lex fori. If an instrument has a scrawl instead of a seal, it must be treated as a simple contract and sued on as such in a jurisdiction where a scrawl is not regarded as sufficient to create a specialty, whatever may be the lex loci contractus.[98]

Whether Remedy Is at Law or in Equity[edit | edit source]

If, where a contract is sought to be enforced, the remedy is in equity, a suit in equity must be brought, although the remedy may be at law in the jurisdiction where tlte contract was made.[99]

Parties[edit | edit source]

So also the question as to who are the proper parties to the action is to be determined by the lex fori. And that law determines whether a suit is to be brought in the name of the assignor of the contract to the use of the assignee, or whether it shall be brought in the name of the assignee.

Conflict of Laws as to Time[edit | edit source]

In General[edit | edit source]

The validity of an agreement depends on the state of the law at the time it was entered into. A contract will be construed according to the law of the state, as interpreted by its courts, at the time the contract was made, and not in accordance with subsequent contrary decisions. The organization of a territory as a state will not affect rights under the existing contracts which are expressly saved.

Agreement Illegal When Made but Afterward Legalized[edit | edit source]

If an agreement was illegal by statute, or on grounds of public policy, when made, it is not, according to the great weight of authority, rendered legal by repeal of the statute or by a subsequent change in public or legislative poliey, although a contract which provides for something known to the parties to be illegal at the time being done in the event and only in the event of ita becoming lawful is good, unless the thing is of snch a character that its becoming lawful cannot be seriously contemplated. And where a person has received a benefit under an illegal contract, a promise by him to pay therefor, although made after the repeal of the statute which rendered the contract illegal, is not supported by a sufficient consideration.[100]

Agreement Legal When Made but Afterward Prohibited[edit | edit source]

So a change in the law oannot make an agreement illegal which was legal when it was made, although it may be rendered unenforceable. Therefore, where an agreement is legal when entered into, and is afterward made illegal by statute, acts done under it while it remained legal are legal; and a contract that is valid when made is not affected by a change in the public policy of the state.[101] An agreement made after the passage of a prohibiting statute, but before the act went into effect, is not affected by it.[102] But a contract is discharged by illegality supervening subsequently to the time of contracting, which may occur by a new statute or other act of public authority rendering the performance legally impossible,[103] unless the discharge is prevented by the constitutional prohibition of laws impairing the obligation of contracts.

    As to mere personal contracts the law thereof as to their validity and interpretation is that of the place where they were made; the lex loci contractus, unless the parties thereto I n te n d e d that they should be governed by the law of the place of performance; the lex oel solution is, or of some other place. That is, the place of the contract is, generally speaking, a matter of mutual intention, but the intended place. as determined by legal presumption in some cases and evidentiary circumstances in others, settles all questions as to the legal test of validity and Interpretation. Such presumption, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, is that the place of making and performance, In a physical sense, is the place in a legal sense, but the place of performance when differerent from that of the actual making, is the place In such l egal sense, subject to the presumption being rebutted by clear evidence of intention, this being again subject to some exceptions In case of intention to commit a fraud on the law.

    [a] Applications of rule.--Where the lex loci contractus deals with the substantive liability of a party to a contract, to be performed where made, the enforcement of which is sought in another jurisdiction, a limitation such liability imposed by the law of the place of the contract will be enforced by the forum where the remedy is sought, unless contrary to public policy.

    [a] Reason for the rule.--"When a merchant of France, Holland, or England, enters into a contract in his own country, he must be presumed to be conusant of the laws at the place where he is, and to expect that his contract is to be judged of and carried into effect according to those laws; and the merchant with whom he deals, if a foreigner, must be supposed to submit himself to the same laws, unless he has taken care to stipulate for a performance in some other country, or has, in some other way, excepted his particular contract from the laws of the country where he is." Blanchard v. Russell, 13 folass. 1, 4, 7 AmD 106.
    [b] The expression "place of contract," in the rule that the validity of a contract is governed by the law at the place ot contract has generally been employed to mean the place where the contract is entered into. Mayer v. Roche, 77 N. J. L. 681, 76 A l!36, 2 6 LRANS 763. 18.

    The business sense of all business men has come to this conclusion, that if a contract is made in one country to be carried out between the parties in another country, either in whole or in part, unless there appears something to the contrary, it is to be concluded that the parties must have intended that it should be carried out according to the law of that other country.

    [a]

    The expression "Place of Contract" is in itself ambiguous, since it may mean either the ola.ce where the contract Is entered Into or the place where it is to be performed. Dic. Con. L. 726; Pritchard v. Norton, 106 U. S. 124, 1 SCt 102, 27 L. ed. 104. In the English and American cases, however, it has come to be used generally as signifying the place where the contract is entered into, and since the law of that place does not always control, the cases seem sometimes to be more at variance than they really are. In the English courts it has finally been held that the proper law of the contract is the law or laws by which the parties to a contract intended, or may fairly be presumed to have intended, the contract to be governed. Hamlyn v. Talisker Distillery, [1894) A. C. 202, a careful and learned review of which by Judge Schofield is to be found in 9 Harv. L. R. 371. This rule is substantially that expressed by Lord Mansfield in Robinson v. Bland, 2 Burr. 1077, 97 Reprint 717, and more exactly by Chief Justice Marshall in Wayman v. Southard. 10 Wheat. (U.S.) 1, 48, 6 L. ed. 153, where he said that in every forum a contract is governed by the law with a view to which it was made. The same rule seems to have been in the mind of Lord Denman in Rothschild v. Currie, 1 Q. B. 43, 41 ECL 428, 113 Reprint 1046, and was distinctly stated by Mr. Justice Willes in Lloyd v. Guibert, L. R. 1 Q. B. 115, 58 ERC 170, and by Lord Bowen in Jacobs v. Credit Lyonnale, 12 Q. B. D. 689. The same rule has been adopted by the United States Supreme Court. Coghlan v. South Carolina R. Co., 142 U.S. 101, 12 SCt 160, 35 L. ed. 951; Pritchard v. Norton, 106 U. S. 124, 1 SCt 10!, 27 L. ed. 104. Mr. Justice Gray, in Liverpool, etc., Steam Co. v. Phenix Ins. Co., 129 U. S. 397, I SCt 469, 3% L. ed. 788, used a form of statement which treated the place where the contract was made as the general rule, but allowed an exception where the parties had a different jurisdiction in view. The later form of statement, which treats the proper law of the contract as that which the parties intended, or may fairly be presumed to have intended, is the more accurate. It harmonises witb the general rule which leads the courts to give effect to the intentions of the parties as far as they are embodied in words, and It does awa;y with the apparent discrepancy between cases like the one last cited, which adopts the law ot the place where the contract Is made. and cases like London Assur. v. Com- panhla de Moagens, 167 U. S. 149, 17 SCt 786, 42 L. ed. 113, where the court said: 'Generally speaking, the law of the place where the contract is to be performed is the law which governs as to its validity and interpretatlon.' The place where the contract is made and the place where the contract is to be performed are both important indicia of the law by which the parties may fairly be presumed to have intended that the­ contract should be governed, but neither is necessarily conclusive, as appears by the decision in Lloyd v. Gulbert, already cited, where the law which governed was the law of the flag under which the ship sailed, and not the law of the place where the contract was made, nor the law of the place where it was to be performed. The rule of following the intention of the parties has also the merit of flexibility and will cover all cases which can arise. No less general rule can do so.

    [a] Sufficiency of designation.-- Where a corporation, although incorporated In Virginia, has its actual domicile in the District of Columbia, a contract with such corporation should be construed according to the laws of the District of Columbla, notwithstanding a stlpulation therein that the laws of Viginia shall govern, the by-laws of such corporation requiring all payments to and from the corporation to be payable at Its central office In Washington, D. C., and the general rule being that the contract Is governed by the law of the place of performance. In this case the contract was usurious under the laws of the District of Columbia., and the court held that the mere designation by the parties that the laws of Virginia should govern, when neither the place of the making of the con- tract nor the place of Its performance is in such designated state, is not sufficient to b ri n g the contract under the laws of such state, when the evident purpose is to escape the effect of the statutes of the state in which the parties are when the contract is made.

    The law of one state having, ex proprio vigore, no validity in another state, the enforcement of a foreign contract which would not be valid by the law of the forum where its enforcement is judicially attempted, depends upon comity which is extended for that purpose, unless the agreement is contrary to the public policy of the state of the forum, in that it is contrary to good morals, or the state or its citizens would be injured by the enforcement, or it perniciously violates positive written or unwritten prohibitory law; the extent to which comity will be extended being very much a matter of judicial policy to be determined within reasonable limitations by each state for itself.

    [a] Exercise of of comity voluntary act-The courts recognize the laws of other states pertaining to contracts, and give them effect on the principle of comity, which is the voluntary act of the state by which is offered, and is inadmissible when contrary to its policy or prejudicial to its interests.

Where property was delivered to a carrier in Illinois to transport to St. Louis, Missouri, and where, by the law of Illinois when the receipt was given, the mere acceptance of a receipt did not import assent to its conditions, while by the law of Missouri the mere acceptance of the receipt without objection imported an agreement on all the terms of the receipt. It was held, in an action brought in Missouri, that the question as to whether a contract had been made was to be tested by the law of Illinois, and that therefore on the evidence no agreement in the case at bar could be presumed.

    The legality of an act and the validity of the contract under which it is to be done are as separate and distinct entities as the act of making the contract and that of doing any of the things it contemplates. The making of a contract is an act and, like all other acts, depends for its validity on the law of the place where it is done; so when the contract is not made in the place in which it is to be performed, its validity depends on the law of one jurisdiction, and the legality of the act to be done on that of another. A contract may be invalid when the act to be done is legal, both where the contract is made and where it is to be performed (Davis v. Osgood, 69 N. H. 4 2 7 , 44 A 432 ); for not only is a contract to do an illegal act invalid, but one to do a legal act is also invalid if it is made at a time or in a way the lex loci contractus forbids the parties to make it. The test, therefore, to determine the validity of a contract is to inquire whether the lex loci contractus forbade the parties to make it--not whether it forbade them to do the act or acts it contemplates, nor whether the parties are forbidden to do them by the law of the place where they are to be done

    While contracts which, though valid in the place thereof, are not enforceable in the country where enforcement is attempted for reasons above suggested, are often spoken of in textbook and other authorities, as exceptions to the rule that the validity of a contract is referable to the place which the parties thereto at the time of making intended should be incorporated into it, they are not exceptions strictly so called. The rule in a technical sense is without exception. In practical effect, the rule of the forum supersedes it leaving the contract without remedy there to enforce it and, in that sense, void

"Comity will not be exercised whe n It prejudices the rights of our own citizens or deni es to them the beneftt ot our own laws." Bath Gas Light Co. v. Rowland, 84 App. Dlv. I>U. &Ga. 82 NYS 841 [atf 178 N. Y. 631 mem, 71 NE 1 1 27 mem ] .
    [a] Illustration.-- In an Illinois case it was admitted that a Missouri building association had loaned money in Illinois at a usurious rate, unless it fell within the statute of Illinois providing that no interest, premiums, or fines accruing to a building association should be deemed usurious, and that the shares of stock in such association should be one hundred dollars each, payable in periodical installments not to exceed two dollars per share. The Missouri association was organized under an act authorizing the issuance of full paid-up interest-bearing stock, of the par value of one thousand dollars per share, to be matured when the dividends and sum invested equaled the face value. It was held by the supreme court of Illinois that, as this was not authorized by the local statute, the rule of comity did not apply, and the contract would be held usurious, since the building association provided for by the latter statute was not with in the spirit and meaning, but was opposed to the idea of such an association as was protected by the local statute. Said the court:

    Under these statutes, and under the general rule of comity existing between States, we will allow to foreign corporations a standing in our courts to enforce the valid contracts they may have made with our citizens, and all valid liens against property situated in this State. But that rule of comity does not require that we should allow foreign corporations to enforce contracts here if such enforcement would be in conftlct with our laws, and, being thus in conftlcti the enforcement whereof would work against our own citizens and give to the citizens of another State an advantage which the resident has not.

    [a] Sale of prejudicial commodities.--The legislature of the state has power to say that the principle of comity between states sball not be e xtended to a contract the result of which Is to gi ve one of the parties t hereto th e means of violating the l aws o f the state and Its establi shed policy In relation to the sale there in of commodities believed to be prej u- dicial t o the interest of Its citizens.

    [b] Agreement to maka will.--By statute of Massachusetts an agreement to make a. will "is not binding" unless I n writing. A woman of Massachusetts, bein g in Maine, o rally pr omised p la !ntit'f that If she would leav e Maine and take care of her during her life she would leav e her all her property a t her death. Plain- t i lt ac cepted the proposal, went with her to Massachusetts, performed her part of the agreement, and at her death sued her executor on the pro m- !se. It was shown tha.t the o ral con - tract was good in Maine, but the court of Massachusetts refused to enforce it. "The statute," says Ho l m es , J., "evidently embodies a. .fundamental policy. The grou nd, of Internatloncourse, Is the prevention of fraud and pe rj ury, which are deemed likely to be prall tl s ed without this safe- Monguard .... If the po licy of Massa· chu se tts makes void an oral contract of this sort made wi thin the State, the same po licy forbids that Massa· ch use tts testators should be sued Burhere upon such contracts without written eviden ce, wherever they are made."

    [ a ] Reason of the rule.--"It appears to me, however, plain on general principles, that this Court will not enforce a contract against the publ ic policy of this country, wherever It may be made.

    The law will not presume that the parties contracted to do an unlawful thing or violate a statutory prohibition in carrying out its terms, but that their purpose was the accomplishment of a lawful object and the performance of the agreement in a place or territory where its performance was permissible.

    This is well illustrated in Leroux v. Brown. 1 4 Eng. L. & Eq. 247, In which It was held that an ac- tlon can not be mai n ta i ned In the courts ot England upon a parol con- trac t made In France. which was not to be performed w ! t:b ! n one year from the mak i n g thereof. although the contract was val i d by the laws of France. The case turned upon the question whether the statute made v o i d suc h contracts. It I t made them \" old. then, Inasmuch as the law of France governed the contract. the suit could be maintained. but It the statute appl ied to the remedy mere- ly. then, Inasmuch as the law of England governed the course of pro- cedure. no recoverv could be had.

    [b] Parol evidence.--The question whether a contract may be proved by parol. or whether written evidence must be adduced. and the question whether parol evidence may be received to show the actual agreement of the partlee to a blank Indorsemen t o f a negotiable Instrument, must be determined by the law of the state where the action I s brought. and not by that of the state where the eon - tract was made.
