Definition
successful or good — especially with regard to finances or wealth
  • With her I liv'd in joy; our wealth increas'd By prosperous voyages I often made To Epidamnum, till my factor's death, And he,—great care of goods at random left,— Drew me from kind embracements of my spouse: From whom my absence was not six months old, Before herself,—almost at fainting under The pleasing punishment that women bear,— Had made provision for her following me, And soon and safe arrived where I was.
    1.1 — Act 1 Scene 1 — A hall in the DUKE'S palace (27% in)
