Question

Question below is based on the following fact situation.

On April 10, Gallop, owner of the Galloping Hill Golf Course in Unionville, entered into an oral agreement with Sprink. Based upon their agreement, Sprink promised to install all new sprinkler heads on the sprinkler system at the golf course. In return, Gallop promised to pay Sprink $2,400 upon completion of the job. Since the Unionville County Golf Tournament was scheduled for the weekend of April 20- 21, Sprink agreed to replace all the sprinkler heads no later than April 19. Before accepting the job, Sprink inspected the golf course and determined that 240 sprinkler heads had to be replaced.

By April 14, Sprink had installed eighty new sprinkler heads on the first six holes of the golf course. That afternoon, however, Gallop learned that Sprink had been adjudicated bankrupt on April 12. Based on this information, Gallop notified Sprink to discontinue the job. The next day, Gallop hired Hand to complete the installation work at eight dollars ($8) per head. Hand installed the remaining 160 sprinkler heads and completed the work on April 19. Despite making reasonable efforts, Sprink was unable to find any gainful employment during the period that Hand completed the job. Also, Sprink's application for unemployment compensation was rejected at the same time.

Assume for the purposes of this question only that Gallop was legally justified in discharging Sprink. In an action by Sprink against Gallop, which of the following is Sprink's proper measure of recovery?
