Action for damages for breach of an express warranty. C, at P's request, located a tractor for sale. P agreed to purchase the tractor if D, its owner, would give a warranty of condition. D and C assured P that such a warranty would be made. D addressed a warranty formulated according to P's specifications to C. C purchased the tractor, resold it to P, and delivered to P the statement of warranty. Trial court found for P. Appeal. Held: Affirmed. P, as beneficiary, may sue D directly for breach of the warranty, as D and C intended that the benefit of the warranty should run to P. Jeffery v. Hanson, 139 Wash. Dec. 789, 239 P. 2d 346 (1952).
