From Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  EXHIBIT, practice. Where a paper or other writing is on motion, or on other 
  occasion, proved; or if an affidavit to which the paper writing is annexed, 
  refer to it, it is usual to mark the same with a capital letter, and to add, 
  "This paper writing marked with the letter A, was shown to the deponent at 
  the time of his being sworn by me, and is the writing by him referred to in 
  the affidavit annexed hereto." Such paper or other writing, with this 
  attestation, signed by the judge or other person before whom the affidavit 
  shall have been sworn, is called an exhibit. Vide Stra. 674; 2 P. Wms. 410; 
  Gresl. Eq. Ev. 98.
