I heard that one boy, who was a coal-merchant’s son, came as a set-off against the coal-bill, and was called, on that account, ’Exchange or Barter’ — a name selected from the arithmetic book as expressing this arrangement.
You never can know what it was to be devoted to you, with those old associations; to find that anyone could be so hard as to suppose that the truth of my heart was bartered away, and to be surrounded by appearances confirming that belief.
There are no more uses of "barter" in the book.
