So Sorry

05 Jun

inly – adv.  inwardly, in a manner of great knowledge and understanding

Classical Usage:  The evil slave-holder Simon Legree has a mother who loves him, and never gives up in her efforts to turn him from his life of sin.  He comes back from sea just once, and she nearly succeeds, His heart inly relented, – there was conflict, – but sin got the victory, and he set all the force of his rough nature against the conviction of his conscience.

Classically Mad Usage:  My heart inly repents of not getting this word up yesterday when it was supposed to appear.
