Definition
an expression of sympathy to another who is in sorrow — typically in grief over a death in the family
  • Every qualification is raised at times, by the circumstances of the moment, to more than its real value; and she was sometimes worried down by officious condolence to rate good-breeding as more indispensable to comfort than good-nature.
