Note. When the exchange is so many pence sterling for some piece of foreign money the gain is the more, the lower the exchange: for it is evident I can receive more French crowns for 100l. when the exchange is at 30d. than when it is at 33d. . . But when the exchange is so much per pound sterling, the higher the exchange, the more the gain; for I can re-ceive more Flemish money for 100l. sterling when the exchange is at 35s, than at 33s. Flemish per pound sterling. 22.
