FE’ATLY. adv.


FE’ATLY. adv. [from feat.] Neatly; nimbly; dexterously.
Foot it featly here and there,
And sweet sprites the burthen bear. Shakesp. Tempest.
The moon was up, and shot a gleamy light;
He saw a quire of ladies in a round,
That featly footing seem’d to skim the ground. Dryden.
There haply by the ruddy damsel seen,
Or shepherd-boy, they featly foot the green. Tickell.
