Of giving of sasines

Item, it is devised, statute and ordained, for eschewing of inconvenients in the giving of sasines by private notaries whose names are often unknown and whose protocols cannot be gotten in case the principal instrument is lost, destroyed, subtracted and held away, for eschewing hereof, that all sasines be given in time coming by the sheriff clerk or his deputies, for whom he shall answer, and by no others, upon all precepts that pass from the chancellery, and all other sasines to be given by reputable notaries admitted thereto and by no others.
