745. Unambiguous representations.

If according to the ordinary rules of construction1 a representation was reasonably and naturally capable of bearing only one meaning, its truth or falsity must normally be determined on the assumption that it bore that meaning2. In general a representee3 cannot establish falsity by putting an unnatural or strained interpretation on the words used, although he may prove that in fact he so understood them4; nor can a representor5 escape liability by showing that he intended his representation to bear some meaning other than the only meaning which it was naturally capable of bearing
