In Friedman v. Worthy Fabrics, 347 S.W.2d 639, 640 (Tex. Civ. App.--El Paso 1960, no pet.), Friedman was sued on a verified account, but claimed the debt was barred by the statute of limitations.
The creditor claimed that a letter it received from Friedman acknowledged the debt, so as to remove the limitations bar to recovery.
The court concluded that the letter from Friedman was a clear acknowledgment of the debt and, consequently, an implied promise to pay.Id.
