NA’TURALNESS. n.s. [from natural.]
I. The state of being given or produced by nature.
The naturalness of a desire, is the cause that the satisfac-
tion of it is pleasure, and pleasure importunes the will; and
that which importunes the will, puts a difficulty on the will
refusing or forbearing it.  South’s Sermons.
2. Conformity to truth and reality; not affectation.
He must understand what is contained in the temperament
of the eyes, in the naturalness of the eyebrows. Dryden.
Horace speaks of these parts in an ode that may be reckoned
among the finest for the naturalness of the thought, and the
beauty of the expression.  Addison.
