Scrip (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Scrip

A scrap or slip of paper. The cully freely blotted the scrip, and tipt me forty hogs; the man freely signed the bond, and gave me forty shillings.—Scrip is also a Change Alley phrase for the last loan or subscription. What does scrip go at for the next rescounters? what does scrip sell for delivered at the next day of settling?

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
