- n. Plural form of tumblerful.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
But Mr. Dick was pouring out three large tumblersful of the stuff, and he held one out to me.
Filling and swilling hour after hour, he seldom rises before he gets through ten or fifteen tumblersful, and, if he happens to be thirsty, will double it -- enough, one would think, to founder a horse.
"If you were to begin now, and to take two or three tumblersful as I do, by the time you are my age, you would have drunk fifty hogsheads of rum, and I don't know how many tons of water."
