Jo'urnal. adj. [journale, French; giornale, Italian.] Daily; quotidian. Out of use.

Now 'gan the golden Phœbus for to steep
His fiery face in billows of the West;
And his faint steeds water'd in ocean deep,
Whilst from their journal labours they did rest.
Fa. Queen.

Ere twice the sun has made his journal greeting
To th' under generation, you shall find
Your safety manifested.
Shakes. Meas. for Measure.

So sick I am not, yet I am not well;
But not so citizen a wanton, as
To seem to die ere sick; so, please you, leave me:
Stick to your journal course; the breach of custom
Is breach of all.
Shakespeare's Cymbeline.
