KINDS OF CONSIDERATION. Under the Roman Civil there were four kinds of con sideration, as follows: "Do ut Des," money or goods to receive money or goods; "Facio ut Facias," work for work an act for au act, as mutual promises; "Fa rio ut Des," work for a price, express or implied; "Do ut Facias," price or wages for work. (2 Bl. Corn. 444.) Consideration at common law may be "good," "val uable," or "full and valuable." The common law also recognized that a consideration may consist of a benefit to the promisor, or of a detriment, or loss suffered by the promisee. (Pars. Cont. pp. 430-1.)
