This Chapter is concerned with an examination of the ways in which contractual obligations may be discharged. Leaving aside such matters as discharge by frustration or illegality and rescission ab initio for mistake (as to frustration, see para 22.14, et seq.; as to illegality, see paras 10.19 and 22.14; and as to rescission ab initio for mistake, see paras 17.11 and 22.10), the subject may be divided on the basis of whether or not the discharge takes place in accordance with the terms of the contract.
