Definition
a state of friendly relations
  • An earnest conjuration from the king,— As England was his faithful tributary; As love between them like the palm might flourish; As peace should still her wheaten garland wear And stand a comma 'tween their amities; And many such-like as's of great charge,— That, on the view and know of these contents, Without debatement further, more or less, He should the bearers put to sudden death, Not shriving-time allow'd.
    5.2 — Act 5 Scene 2 — A hall in the Castle (10% in)
