Definition of Abetting:
Phil, it sure would make one's stomach turn; politics, justice, protection, the whole thing would seem to be a farce from start to finish, and we are parties to it ourselves, aiding and abetting it; too weak or else too lazy to issue even a mild protest."- "The Spoilers of the Valley", Robert Watson.

It is accounted a high offence, and at Harvard College is prohibited by the following law:-" In case of a bonfire, or unauthorized fireworks or illumination, any students crying fire, sounding an alarm, leaving their rooms, shouting or clapping from the windows, going to the fire or being seen at it, going into the college yard, or assembling on account of such bonfire, shall be deemed aiding and abetting such disorder, and punished accordingly."- "A Collection of College Words and Customs", Benjamin Homer Hall.
