NU’RSLING. n.s. [from nurse.] One nursed up; a fondling.
Then was she held in sovereign dignity,
And made the nursling of nobility. Spenser.
I was his nursling once, and choice delight,
His destin’d from the womb. Milt. Agonistes.
In their tender nonage, while they spread
Their springing leaves and lift their infant head,
Indulge their childhood, and the nursling spare. Dryden.
