To PA'LTER. v.n.

To PA’LTER. v.n. [from paltron, Skinner.] To shift; to
dodge; to play tricks.
I must
To the young man send humble treaties,
And palter in the shift of lowness. Shakespeare.
Be these juggling fiends no more believ’d,
That palter with us in a double sense;
That keep the word of promise to our ear,
And break it to our hope. Shakesp. Macbeth.
Romans, that have spoke the word,
And will not palter? Shakesp. Jul. Caesar.
