from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. See jacky.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
But when I went over the side of the New York I felt like kneeling down on her deck and begging every jackey to kick me.
Suppose Bess were to address you thus: 'Well you parish bull prig, are you for lushing jackey, or pattering in the hum box?'
I learned that putting the top on the jackey layer avoids that weird thing where a one-pixel line appears between top and bottom no matter what you did to the actual texture while making it.
