Intervíew. n.s. [entrevne, French.] Mutual sight; sight of each other. It is commonly used for a formal and appointed meeting or conference.

The day will come, when the passions of former enmity being allayed, we shall with ten times redoubled tokens of reconciled love shew ourselves each towards other the same, which Joseph and the brethren of Joseph were at the time of their interview in Egypt. Hooker.

His fears were, that the interview betwixt
England and France might, through their amity,
Breed him some prejudice.
Shakesp. Henry VIII.

Such happy interview, and fair event
Of love, and youth not lost, songs, garlands, flow'rs,
And charming symphonies, attach'd the heart
Of Adam.
Milton's Par. Lost, b. xi.
