4. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
VERIFICATION, pleading. Whenever new matter is introduced on either side, 
the plea must conclude with a verification or averment, in order that the 
other party may have an opportunity of answering it. Carth. 337; 1 Lutw. 
201; 2 Wils. 66; Dougl. 60; 2 T. R. 576; 1 Saund, 103, n. 1;  Com. Dig. 
Pleader, E. 
     2. The usual verification of a plea containing matter of fact, is in 
these words, "And this he is ready to verify," &c. See 1 Chit. Pl. 537, 616; 
Lawes, Civ. Pl. 144; 1 Saund, 103, n. 1; Willes, R. 5; 3 Bl. Com. 309. 
     3. In one instance however, new matter need not conclude with a 
verification and then the pleader may pray judgment without it; for example, 
when the matter pleaded is merely negative. Willes, R. 5; Lawes on Pl. 145. 
The reason of it is evident, a negative requires no proof; and it would 
therefore be impertinent or nugatory for the pleader, who pleads a negative 
matter, to declare his readiness to prove it. 



5. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
VERIFICATION, practice. The examination of the truth of a writing; the 
certificate that the writing is true. Vide Authentication.
