Harris v Watson, (1791) Peake 102,170 ER 94, King's Bench

Facts:

P was seaman, D was master of ship. D, in consideration that P would do more work offered to pay money on top of common wage

Ratio:

A Promise to do something already required to do is not good consideration. An obligation made by one party under duress by another party is not good consideration
