To WI’LDER. v.a.

To WI’LDER. v.a. [from wild.] To loose or puzzle in an
unknown or pathless tract.
The little courtiers, who ne’er come to know
The depth of factions, as in mazes go,
Where interests meet, and cross so oft, that they
With too much care are wilder’d in the way. Dryden.
Oh thou! who free’st me from my doubtful state,
Long lost and wilder’d in the maze of fate,
Be present still.  Pope.
