From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Tender \Ten"der\, n.
     1. (Law) An offer, either of money to pay a debt, or of
        service to be performed, in order to save a penalty or
        forfeiture, which would be incurred by nonpayment or
        nonperformance; as, the tender of rent due, or of the
        amount of a note, with interest.
        [1913 Webster]
     Note: To constitute a legal tender, such money must be
           offered as the law prescribes. So also the tender must
           be at the time and place where the rent or debt ought
           to be paid, and it must be to the full amount due.
           [1913 Webster]
     2. Any offer or proposal made for acceptance; as, a tender of
