Department’s 15th.1 In Ogeechee and similar eases, procurator general prefers conclusive proof payment in order to release goods, but will consider any evidence showing that ownership has passed, such evidence to take form of actual documents and supported where possible by original correspondence between buyer and seller. When proof seems inconclusive he will decline to release and will send case to prize court.
