"Oh, yes," said Maggie, reviving a little in the desire to vindicate the variety of her reading.
"Ay, ay, Gritty," said the miller, with a new softness in his tone; "but I’ve allays done what I could for you," he added, as if vindicating himself from a reproach.
He has vindicated you to the utmost; and I hope the communication of that letter to your cousin will have a beneficial effect on her.
Maggie was half stunned,—too heavily pressed upon by her anguish even to discern any difference between her actual guilt and her brother’s accusations, still less to vindicate herself.
Maggie was paralyzed; it was easier to resist Stephen’s pleading than this picture he had called up of himself suffering while she was vindicated; easier even to turn away from his look of tenderness than from this look of angry misery, that seemed to place her in selfish isolation from him.
There are no more uses of "vindicate" in the book.
