ALLEN VS. BURKE. 539
force the agreement of the parties. In Parkhurst vs. Van
Cortlandt, 1 Johns. Ch. Rep., 273, the necessity of certainty
' and precision, in the terms of the agreement, to enable the
court to see clearly what is the contract of the parties, is dwelt
upon, and in that case, it was said that the uncertainty of the
terms of the agreement, was an insuperable objection to the
specific execution sought by the bill.
My opinion, therefore, is, that the contract in this case, is
not set out in the bill, with the necessary degree of certainty
to enable the court to decree its specific execution. It is im-
possible, looking at the bill, to say for what period the defend-
ant should be required to comply with the stipulations sought
' to be enforced against him; and, therefore, without intimating
an opinion upon the evidence or upon the question affecting
the jurisdiction of the court, I think the injunction must be
dissolved.
Z. COLLINS LEE for Complainant.
JOHN H. ING for Defendant.
