To DAFT. v.a.


To DAFT. v.a. [contracted from do aft; that is, to throw back, to throw
off.] To toss aside; to put away with con-
tempt; to throw away slightly.
Where is his son,
The nimble-footed mad-cap prince of Wales,
And his comrades, that daft the world aside,
And bid it pass? Shakespeare’s Henry IV. p. i.
I would she had bestow’d this dotage on me: I would have
dafft all other respects, and made her half myself. Shakesp.
