Definition of Castigating:
While advocating social reforms and castigating wrong- doers at home, Mr. Roosevelt was equally severe in dealing with Latin- American states which failed to discharge their obligations to other countries faithfully.- "Contemporary American History, 1877-1913", Charles A. Beard.
Three in number, Johnny and Charley and Freddy, with castigating elders, even to the second and third generation back, dimly discerned through closed window- panes, they didn't at all haunt the halls of Ferrero- it was a part of their homely grace and their social tone, if not of their want of the latter, that this couldn't in the least be in question for them; on the other hand they frequented, Charley and Freddy at least, the Free School, which was round in Thirteenth Street- Johnny, the eldest, having entered the Free Academy, an institution that loomed large to us and that I see as towered or castellated or otherwise impressively embellished in vague vignettes, in stray representations, perhaps only of the grey schoolbook order, which are yet associated for me with those fond images of lovely ladies, " hand- painted," decorating at either end the interior of the old omnibusses.- "A Small Boy and Others", Henry James.
