This remark called up a discourse relative to the promptitude Nicholas had displayed, and he was overwhelmed with compliments and commendations.
His air, his figure, his walk, his look, everything he said or did, was the subject of commendation.
’Your praise, sir, is commendation, indeed.’
The brothers, on their return, bestowed such commendations on Nicholas for the part he had taken, and evinced so much joy at the altered state of events and the recovery of their young friend from trials so great and dangers so threatening, that, as she more than once informed her daughter, she now considered the fortunes of the family ’as good as’ made.
There are no more uses of "commendation" in the book.
