breathe “in your watering,” 1 HENRY IV., ii. 4. 15 Stop and take breath while you are drinking. (Compare a passage in the old play Timon, edited by me for the Shakespeare Society, from a Ms. in my possession,— “wee also doe enacte
That all holde vp their heades, and laughe aloude,
Drinke much at one draughte, breathe not in their drinke,
p. 37,— which lines, before the play was printed, were cited by Steevens, to support an erroneous interpretation of the passage of Shakespeare).
