geese — “Since I plucked,” THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, v. 1. 23. “The allusion is to the schoolboys' custom of plucking quills out of the wings of geese, not only on the commons where they graze, but in the markets, as they hang by the neck, from the hands of the farmers who are selling them.” Sherwen Mss.,—apud Halliwell.
