It is an agreement made by a person with the whole world. It means the agreement or contract may be accepted by whoever is interested. This may be illustrated by a person who promises to give a specified sum of money to anybody that finds his lost Alsatian dog and returns it to his house.

The implication of this kind of promise is that there is nobody to whom the offer is directed and nobody needs to signify his intention to accept before he performs it. The finding and returning of the dog in this regard constitute both acceptance and performance of the offer and whoever does that is entitled to the promised money.
