avers that he did not assume to perform the assumption charged in the
declaration within six years.
2. The act of limitation bars the recovery of a simple contract debt
after six years; when a defendant is sued on such a contract, and it is more
than six years since he entered into the contract, he pleads this plea by
the following formula: "and saith that the aforesaid plaintiff the action
aforesaid hereof against him he ought not to have, because he saith that he
did not undertake, &c., and this he is ready to verify." Vide _dio non
accrevit infra sex annos.
