Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Statute of Frauds Anderson was seriously injured in a traffic accident. Anderson’s daughter called a doctor, Lawrence, and told him to “give my father the best care you can give him, and I’ll pay whatever you charge.” The doctor provided the care, but the father died before the bill was paid. Lawrence attempted to collect for his services from the father’s estate. The executor of the estate refused to pay. Lawrence then attempted to collect from the daughter who had guaranteed payment. Is the daughter legally responsible for the debts of her father if the agreement was not in writing? [ Lawrence v. Anderson, 184 A. 689 (Vermont)]
