Facts:

D killed someone. Required P to get pardon for him. D promised to pay him 100 after it was done

Ratio:

A request with the implication of payment (a request you would expect to get paid) the court will link the subsequent promise to pay to the previous request – meaning one can recover on the promise

Comments:

Assumpsit: A promise or undertaking, founded on a consideration. This promise may be oral or in writing not under seal. It may be express or implied
