Definition
failing to meet a financial obligation—such as making a monthly payment on a debt
  • I started, or rather (for like other defaulters, I like to lay half the blame on ill fortune and adverse circumstances) was thrust on to a wrong tack at the age of one-andtwenty, and have never recovered the right course since: but I might have been very different; I might have been as good as you — wiser — almost as stainless.
