Definition
give or pass down — often upon death in a will
  • But here's a parchment with the seal of Caesar,— I found it in his closet,—'tis his will: Let but the commons hear this testament,— Which, pardon me, I do not mean to read,— And they would go and kiss dead Caesar's wounds, And dip their napkins in his sacred blood; Yea, beg a hair of him for memory, And, dying, mention it within their wills, Bequeathing it as a rich legacy Unto their issue.
    3.2 — Act 3 Scene 2 — The same. The Forum (52% in)
