Saskatchewan, Canada

The following excerpt is from King v. Londerville, 1915 CanLII 245 (SK CA):

In Stuart v. Lovell, Lord Ellenborough held that evidence of subsequent declarations of the defendant would be admissible to show the intention of the party if it were at all equivocal, but if they were not admitted for that purpose they certainly were not admissible for the purpose of enhancing the damages.
