A'fter-enquiry. n.s. [from after and enquiry.] Enquiry made after the fact committed, or after life.
You must either be directed by some that take upon them to know, or to take upon yourself that, which, I am sure, you do not know, or lump the after-enquiry on your peril; and how you shall speed in your journal's end, I think, you'll never return to tell me. Shakespeare's Cymbeline.
