Hello to everyone
This is coming from Colonel Jack by Defoe.


As for the bills, there was no room to doubt but unless
they had been carried that minute
to the goldsmith's for the money, he
would have come with notice to stop the payment, and perhaps have come
while the money was receiving, and have taken hold of the person.

Does that minute mean "the moment they can carry those bills to the goldsmith's shop to exchange into money?
