5. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
EXCHANGE, com. law. This word has several significations.
     2.-1. Exchange is a negotiation by which one person transfers to 
another funds which he has in a certain place, either at a price agreed 
upon, or which is fixed by commercial usage. This transfer is made by means 
of an instrument which represents such funds, and is well known by the name 
of a bill of exchange. 
     3.-2. The price which is paid in order to obtain such transfer, is 
also known among merchants by the name of exchange; as, exchange on England 
is five per cent. See 4 Wash. C. C. R. 307. Exchange on foreign money is to 
be calculated according to the usual rate at the time of trial. 5 S. & R. 
48. 
     4.-3. Barter, (q.v.) or the transfer of goods and chattels for other 
goods and chattels, is also known by the name of exchange, though the term 
barter is more commonly used. 
     5.-4. The French writers on commercial law, denominate the profit 
which arises from a maritime loan, exchange, when such profit is a 
percentage on the money lent, considering it in the light of money lent in 
one place to be returned in another, with a difference in amount in the sum 
borrowed and that paid, arising from the difference of time and place. Hall 
on Mar. Loans, 56, n.; and the articles Interest; Maritime; Premium. 
     6.-5. By exchange is also meant, the place where merchants, captains 
of vessels, exchange agents and brokers, assemble to transact their 
business. Code de Comm. art. 71.

6. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
EXCHANGE conveyancing. An exchange is a mutual grant of equal interests in 
land, the one in consideration of the other. 2 Bl. Com. 323; Litt. s. 62; 
Touchs. 289; Watk. Prin. Con. It is said that exchange, in the United 
States, does not differ from bargain and sale. 2 Bouv. Inst. n. 2055. 
     2. There are five circumstances necessary to an exchange. 1. That the 
estates given be equal. 2. That the word escambium or exchange be used, 
which cannot be supplied by any other word, or described by circumlocution. 
3. That there be an execution by entry or claim in the life of the parties. 
4. That if it be of things which lie in grant, it be by deed. 5. That if the 
lands lie in several counties, it be by deed indented; or if the thing lie 
in grant, though they be in one county. In practice this mode of 
conveyancing is nearly obsolete. Vide Cruise, Dig. tit. 32 Perk. ch. 4 10 
Vin. Ab. 125; Com. Dig. h.t.; Nels. Ab. h.t.; Co. Litt. 51; Hardin's R.
