SOUND MIND

That state of a man's mind which is adequate to reason and comes to a judgment upon ordinary subjects, like other rational men.

The law presumes that every person who has acquired his full age is of sound mind, and consequently competent to make contracts and perform all his civil duties; and he who asserts to the contrary must prove the affirmation of his position by explicit evidence, and not by conjectural proof.
