Manuscript mortgage note for 6,300 livres from Louis Herbin at Montreal to Gershom Levy. The note has been endorsed by Levy to Aaron Hart and has several docketed notes in English on the reverse dated March 25, 1763 noting that only 200 pounds in New York currency had been received by Hart on the note. Apollos Morris, a justice of the peace at Trois-Rivières, records that Hart swore his oath to this effect "on the old testament( being of the Jewish persuasion)."
