CONJUNCTIONS. And used for "also" by Wickliffe

"And" for "also" in Early English. We find "and" often used for "also," "both," &c., and standing at the beginning of a sentence in earlier English. Wickliffe has, 2 Cor. xi. 21, 22:

"In what thing ony man dare, and I dare. Thei ben ebreus, and I."

"And" is used for "even" or "also" in Acts xiv. 15:

And we ben deedli men like you.

In

“I almost die for food, and let me have it,

"I pray you" may perhaps be understood after and, implied in the imperative "let."
