  • How can I add a definition for vesta ?

  • The way I see it, ErikJakubowski, you have two options. The first is to add your definition here in the comment section. The second is to build a time machine, find Charles Sanders Peirce, and convince him to write a definiton for the Century Dictionary. (If you decide to go with the second option, I'd consider it a personal favor if you could get him to sneak the word hence into the definition.)
