The buyer must be responsible for his own free act. Let the buyer keep his eyes open, for the bargain he agrees to is binding. In English law, Chief Justice Tindal modified this rule. He said if the buyer gives notice that he relies on the vendor’s judgment, and the vendor warrants the article, then the vendor is bound to furnish an article “reasonable and fit for the purpose required.”
