Definition of Vaunted:
- "Anna St. Ives", Thomas Holcroft.
Only the police, as usual, vaunted about having a clue, and being pressed to explain, a sergeant said: " Why, only this: you see he drew a lot of cash from the bank in notes and gold, and as we hear that he is in grief, there is little doubt in our minds that he has gone, for a quiet holiday to the Continent, or even to the States."- "Annie o' the Banks o' Dee", Gordon Stables.
It is possible that some of these penitents, living in the forest and having no other companions, learned to love the animals that came to see them; but the much- vaunted kindness to animals of the Hindoos in general is merely a matter of superstition and not an outcome of sympathy.- "Primitive Love and Love-Stories", Henry Theophilus Finck.
