Definition of burry:
As she sat before a " burry," clad in a blue, pinafore- like garment, from which emerged white silk sleeves to match the collar and yoke, her hand absently turning over a pile of notebooks, bound in green and blue and rose, she made a striking contrast to Hannah Vernon in a cinnamon coat and skirt, built for wear by a cheap tailor on the principle of " there or thereabouts."- "A College Girl", Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey.
