Harlotry, == harlot: “he sups to-night with a h.” Oth. IV, 2, 239 (Q harlot). Glendower and Capulet use it like baggage as a term of contempt for a silly wench: “a peevish self-willed h.” H4A III, 1, 199. Rom. IV, 2, 14. Adjectively: “he doth it like one of these h. players,” H4A II, 4, 437 (== vagabond players? But perhaps Mrs Quickly means quite another thing, as f. i. Herod or hero players).
