Alliance Bank Ltd v Broom: 1864

The bank demanded security for its loan in circumstances in which it would otherwise have enforced payment. It made no promise not to demand payment but: ‘the [bank] did in effect give, and the defendant received, the benefit of some degree of forbearance; not, indeed, for any definite time, but, at all events, some extent of forbearance.’
