Definition
to formally state — such as a condition or requirement of a contract, or an opinion of a circumstance that has legal significance
  • That the general should come forward to solicit the alliance, or that he should even very heartily approve it, they were not refined enough to make any parading stipulation; but the decent appearance of consent must be yielded, and that once obtained—and their own hearts made them trust that it could not be very long denied—their willing approbation was instantly to follow.
