To change Federal Money to New-England and Virginia currency.

RULE. When the sum is dollars only, multiply it by 3 and double the first figure of the product for shillings, and the rest of the product will be pounds.

When there are cents in the given sum, multiply the whole by 3 and cut off three figures of the product to the right hand as a remainder.

Multiply this remainder by 20 and cut off as before.

Proceed in this manner through the several parts of a pound, and the numbers standing on the left hand, make the answer, in the several denominations. Note. If there be mills, cut off four figures and proceed as above.
