Excerpt: ...had been taken at the hearing of the cause without the attention of the other side having been called to it, for it appears by the proceedings, that on the 18th of Septemher, (which I take to have been in the year 1841, ) the Plaintiff's Vakeel put in a petition to the following effect, that the Defendant had put in a forged deed of gift. The stamp professes to have been purchased on the 19th of July, 1832, whereas on the 19th July, 1832, no stamp paper of Rs. 8 value was sold; and since the stamp was not sold by the Government oflicers on that date, the Defendant must have acquired the stamp by embezzlement, or the stamp must have been lost by Government, and on it the Defendant had fabricated his forged deed.

Here in 184l, therefore, the attention of the Defendant is called to this circumstance, as affecting the genuineness of the deed; he is told, you have produced an instrument which purports to bear a stamp sold on the 19th July, 1832; and on the 19th of July, 1832, no such stamp as that was in existence; and they pray to have an inquiry. Accordingly, the deed was examined in the presence of the Vakeels of both parties, and an order was recorded, that as the record was under despatch to the Sudder Court, no inquiry could at present be instituted. Subsequently, it appears that an inquiry was instituted, and the Plaintiffs produce an extract from the register of stamp sales for the 19th of July 1832, with the seal and signature of the Collector. The date of the stamp can nowhere be found in this document; indeed, it appears from the register that on that day no paper more
