- adjective physically untoughened
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The young Lord Berkeley, with the fresh air of freedom in his nostrils, was feeling invincibly strong for his new career; and yet -- and yet -- if the fight should prove a very hard one at first, very discouraging, very taxing on untoughened moral sinews, he might in some weak moment want to retreat.
Specially if the towel is of untoughened and silky texture.
