This ticfec! was the necessity uniler which suitors were placed, when ansvreiing the alleguiiiins of tlieir op. pooeuts, of first taking out copies of all the ela. borate pleading required lo be entered by tkc other side, as records of the Courtsj before they, could proceed to any replication by plea" or e?i-dence. These pleadintfs, in some insiahces that came withfD his own knowtodt;t>, amounted to a Tulume-of 1500 paiii^, the cupy of each of urhich requised the signature of an Officer of the Court, who must receive a fee upon each: an.d he had kooira iastaoces where the sum in litigation did-not exceet) 200^ or 300/. where the fees of Court lOtoe amounted to 500/. or 700/. and in'one sui^ CSSQ to 1500/.
