 An engagement by which the promisor contracts towards another to perform or to do something in the advantage of the latter. When a promise is made, all that is said at the time in relation to it must be considered; if, therefore, a man promises to pay all he owes, accompanied by a denial that he owes any thing, no action will lie to enforce such a promise. And when the promise is conditional, the condition must be performed before it becomes of binding force.
