Yaskey v Freetown City Council (No.3) (1 of 1933) [1933] SLCA 1 (10 October 1933)

Contract - damages - measure of damages - damages reasonably
within contemplation of parties at time of contract, or arising naturally
and probably from breach: The damages which may be awarded for a
breach of contract are those in respect of such damage as arises naturally,
that is, according to the usual course of things, from the breach itself,
or such as may reasonably be supposed to have been in the contemplation
of both parties, at the time they made the contract, as the
probable result of the breach of it.
