To Láckey. v.a. [from the noun.] To attend servilely. I know not whether Milton has used this word very properly.
This common body,
Like to a vagabond flag upon the stream,
Goes to, and back, lacqueying the varying tide,
To rot itself with motion. Shakesp. Ant. and Cleopatra.
So dear to heav'n is saintly chastity,
That when a soul is found sincerely so,
A thousand liveried angels lackey her,
Driving far off each thing of sin and guilt. Milton.
