Gyves, chains, fetters: Compl. 242. Meas. IV, 2, 12. H4A IV, 2, 44. Rom. II, 2, 180. Cymb. V, 4, 14. “would convert his g. to graces,” Hml. IV, 7, 21 (an obscure passage not yet satisfactorily explained or amended. Perhaps it means: that which should be designed to fetter him, to trammel him up, would lend him a grace in the eyes of the people. As for gyves hindering grace of motion, see Compl. 242 and H4A IV, 2, 44).*
