1. Why would the law require Merchants to have title to something that was in Jamison’s own post office box?
2. Why did the court find it unnecessary to “delve into” the difference between a shipment and a destination contract?

Jamison purchased a set of encyclopedias from Encyclopedia Britannica who then assigned the contract to Merchants to complete the delivery and receive payment. The contract contained shipping instructions and specified Jamison’s home address as the place of delivery. However, Jamison never received the encyclopedias because they were shipped via UPS to her P.O. Box. Jamison refused to pay the installments due on the purchase and cancelled the purchase.
