Definition of supplication:
- "Petticoat Rule", Emmuska Orczy, Baroness Orczy.
Its last act on earth, before leaving, was to deliver a concentrated double- kick at the barrier, but the instant it found itself in air its flattened ears sprung up with an air of horrified astonishment, and all its legs hung straight and rigid, the four hoofs coming together as if in abject supplication to any one, or anything, that could deliver.- "Six Months at the Cape", R.M. Ballantyne.
- "The Moghul", Thomas Hoover.
