The receiver appointed under Section 81-9-17 shall cause notice to be given in such newspaper as the court may direct, once a week for four consecutive weeks, calling on all persons who may have claims against the bank to present the same and make proof thereof upon forms to be furnished by the receiver, at a place and within a time specified in the notice, which shall be approximately ninety days from the date of the first publication. A copy of the notice shall be mailed to all depositors and creditors as shown by the books of the bank, at their last known post-office address. If the receiver doubts the justice or validity of any claim he shall reject the same by serving notice upon the claimant in writing, and such rejection shall be final unless the claimant shall, within ninety days from the date of such rejection, petition the chancellor in the receivership cause for a review of the action of the receiver. Claims presented more than ninety days after the first publication of the above recited notice shall be entitled to share only in dividends thereafter paid.
