Definition of Parleying:
- "The Blue Pavilions", Sir Arthur Thomas Quiller-Couch.
Without further parleying, as the fleet of the English and their allies approached, the Turks and Egyptians began to fire, and a battle ensued, apparently without plan on either side: the conflict soon became general, and Admiral Codrington in the Asia opened a broadside upon the Egyptian admiral, and quickly reduced his vessel to a wreck.- "History Of Egypt From 330 B.C. To The Present Time, Volume 12 (of 12)", S. Rappoport.
