Definition of compacts:
Synonyms for compacts:
Such compacts have been made from time immemorial- but so far their only result has been that the survivors have believed occasionally that they have received visits from deceased friends- in other words, that their state of great excitement and eager expectation has caused them to have visions.- "Modern Magic", Maximilian Schele de Vere.
By the ancient constitution assured by compacts and grants since English laws were first brought into that country, Ireland was united to the Crown of England as a free and distinct kingdom, with the right of holding parliaments subject only to the king and his privy council; statutes of the English parliament had not force of law there until they had been re- enacted in Ireland- which indeed was necessary by the very theory of parliaments, for there were no Irish representatives in the English Houses.- "Irish Nationality", Alice Stopford Green.
