Gittin Daf 40

If a master puts Tefillin on his slave the slave goes out free. This teaches us an important lesson. Even though to free a slave normally requires a shtar, here not even a statement is required. This is because actions can even be stronger than the written word. How careful we need to be with our actions!

And I learn, this is a proof that there must have been a shtar before. What is your source?
