In Georgia, if, by mistake, a jus. tice in issuing an attachment omits to append to his signature the usual official addendum (J. P.) which indicates that his signature is official, he may amend nunc pro tunc in the Superior Court by appending the letters. The jurat, the court says, is no part of the affidavit; it is only the officer's entry, and why should it not be amendable! Murf. Just. Prac., § 332, citing Dickson 1. Thurmond, 57 Ga 153; Veal v. Perkerson, 47 Ga, 92.
