~Words To Help You Write Better

word of the day - apricate

The infirm state of my bodily health would be a sufficient apology for not taking up the pen at this time, wholesome as I deem it for the mind to apricate in the shelter of epistolary confidence, were it not that a considerable, I might even say a large, number of individuals in this parish expect from their pastor some publick expression of sentiment at this crisis.

-James Russell Lowell, in a satirical piece that appeared in the Atlantic Monthly in February 1863.
