Court Fees 영수필증

This translation has been done in two parts: the document (I) and the stamp (II) on the document. The document is in the revenue stamp collection of Joe Ross.

Translation 2: revenue stamp text
The revenue stamp on the document contains the following lines:

Line 1: “Price 10 jeon”
Line 2: “We have received the payment”
(As in: 10 jeon has already been paid for this stamp)
Line 3: “If this stamp is unused we will return the amount mentioned to you.”
(Apparently unused stamps could be returned.)
Line 4: “Busan District Court”
Line 5: “Handled by the administrative office”
(Perhaps “clerical department” or such a term?)
