Extremely helpful in understanding 18th century documents. English words have evolved to mean something different than they did 250 years ago, so 21st century readers can frequently misunderstand the meaning of an 18th century text. I am glad this dictionary is so readily available.
This dictionary is very useful in the study of the foundational documents of the United States. Thank you
