If not sent by mail, the person delivering them into court shall make affidavit before the clerk or justice that he received them from the hands of the officer before whom they were taken, that they have not been out of his possession since, and that they have undergone no alteration. The party taking the deposition shall give prompt notice of its filing to all other parties.
