Money changer

"Shroff, Money dealer, Hindoo, Delhi", sitting on his table in front of a Muslim customer. 'Their trade is the exchange of money, the giving change for rupees in pyce or copper coin, and for pyce in cowries. There is generally an established rate for change [...] Before him is his day-book, into which he enters the most minute transactions, and beside him his box and small bags of money. The stall of the Shroff is not unfrequently one of the gossip places of the local community.'
