PREPOSITIONS. Till for "to"

Till is used for to:

“From the first corse till he that died to-day,

where probably till is a preposition, and "he" for "him." See He.

“Lean'd her breast up till a thorn.

Early Eng. "He said thus til (to) him," and, on the other hand, "To (till) we be gone." So "unto" in Chaucer for "until." “I need not sing this them until (for 'unto them').” HEYWOOD.

“We know whereuntil (whereto) it doth amount.

“And hath shipped me intil (into) the land.
