111. Meaning of 'deposit'.

Bailment by deposit1 may be defined as a bailment of a chattel, to be kept for the bailor gratuitously2, and returned upon demand3. This definition is sufficient for most purposes, and is complete, if it is understood that a return to the bailor covers delivery over to his nominee, for in some cases the primary object of the bailment may be that the bailee delivers over the chattel upon demand to a third party, and not to the actual bailor himself. This kind of bailment must always relate to a specific chattel4.

As the bailee is to receive no reward
