“A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.”

Par inparem imperium non habet.An equal has no power over an equal.

So, the U.S. Forest Service, under the guise of a governmental entity wants to contract.

I wonder if the Muggles know that they are a corporation listed on Dun & Bradstreet ( A credit rating company for corporations).

“It is a fact that a student can graduate from this, the fourth largest law school in the United States, without ever having written a pleading, a contract, a will, a promissory note or a deed. It’s worse than that. It is a fact that most students graduate from this law school without ever having seen a real honest-to-God pleading, or contract, will, promissory note or deed. A student can graduate without ever having set foot in a courtroom and without ever having spoken to, or on behalf of, a person in need of advice or counsel. A student can graduate without once being exposed to the operation of the rules of court. It is a fact that such students and those similarly trained at most other schools do pass the bar exam and are certified as competent to render advice and to represent others in court. Whatever else may be said about this license issued by the state bar, let it be said that for these students and their clients it is a cruel hoax. Law professors are not appalled by these facts mainly because they are products of the same type of education.” James R. Nielsen, My Turn: The Flaw in Our Law Schools, Newsweek, June 11, 1984 Newsweek, June 11, 1984.

The word “offer,” as used in. a statute providing that the buyer, to rescind a sale, must offer within’ a reasonable time to return the goods, is synonymous with the word “tender.” Collins v. Skillings, 224 Mass. 275, 112 N. E. 938, 939, Ann. Cas. 1918D, 424.

Refuse
In some cases, a neglect to perform a duty which the party is required by law or his agreement to do will amount to a refusal.

Black’s 3rd 1933
REFUSAL. The act of one who has, by law, a right and power of having or doing something of advantage, and declines it. Also, the declination of a request or demand, or the omission to comply with ‘ some requirement of law, as the result of a positive intention to disobey. In the latter sense, the word is often coupled with “neglect,” as if a party shall “neglect or refuse” to pay a tax, file an official bond, obey an order of court, etc. But “neglect” signifies a mere omission of a duty, which may happen through. inattention, dilatoriness, mistake, ‘ or inability to perform, while “refusal” implies the positive denial of an application or command, or at least a ‘mental determination not to’ comply.

Hand writing using quill pen

Even where the contract specifically states that no non-written modification will be recognized, the parties may yet alter their agreement by parol negotiation. The hand that pens a writing may not gag the mouths of the assenting parties. The pen may be more precise in permanently recording what is to be done, but it may not still the tongues which bespeak an improvement in or modification of what has been written.
