A RECEIPT in full, though admitted to be strong evidence, is by no means legally conclusive. If the party signing it can show up error or mistako, it will be admitted in his favor.

Receipts for money will be held pen to examination, and the party holding the receipt must abide by the results of such exam. inatior ; the great aim of law being to administer strict justice.

A release must be given over a seal. A release from all da mands extinguishos all possible causes and rights of action, and leavos no room for subsequent quibbling.

A release of one of many equally wrong-doers, generally ro. leases all. This, of course, does not apply to such of the partios es covenant to remain liabie. A release of one of several join obligors, releases all.

An agreement not to sue two joint debtors is a release to both, bui an agreement not to sue one, will not serve as a release to either

Inasmuch as a receipt in full, in the ordinary form, still leaves room to a tricky or unprincipled creditor to harrass and annoy a debtor, it would be well, in all such cases, for the latter to obtain & sealed release, like that under the head of Release of all Dc mands or that under the caption of Special Release..
