Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • I have tried pease-meal, bean-meal, oat-meal, and linseed-cake, and after carefully noting the results, I consider rape-cake, weight for weight, at least equal to any of them for milch cows; and if I give the same money value for each, I get at least one-third more produce, and the butter is always of a very superior quality.

  • The mill was finished with diligence, and each man brought his week’s allowance of peas…from which he got good pease-meal, which made our soup stronger, and did us much good, and put us again in a little better condition than before.
