Meaning of Refreshing Memory

At the trial of an action , a witness may be permitted to refresh his memory by referring to any document made or verified by himself or whose accuracy is recognized by himself concerning and contemporaneous with the facts to which he is testifying. The witness may be allowed to refresh his memory by referring to documents made by others as well under certain circumstances. The principle is that there is no difference that the memorandum is not written by the witness himself, for it is not the memorandum that is evidence but the recollection of the witness.
