The jury have the power to determine the fairnesss or unfairness of the sale. A valuable consideration, or a legitimate debt, must be shown in evidence of good faith, or the sale will be ignored.

A bill of sale should be accompanied by a seal after the nam of the assignor, sealed instruments always having more weight in law than those without.
