Webster's 1913 Dictionary
\Bank" bill`\
1. In America (and formerly in England), a promissory note of
   a bank payable to the bearer on demand, and used as
   currency; a bank note.

2. In England, a note, or a bill of exchange, of a bank,
   payable to order, and usually at some future specified
   time. Such bills are negotiable, but form, in the strict
   sense of the term, no part of the currency.
