- or RAG, a cotton pocket-handkerchief.—_Old Cant._ Now “_clouts_” means a woman’s under-clothes, from the waist downwards, _i.e._, petticoats when they are on the person; but the term is extended to mean the whole unworn wardrobe. Probably St. Giles’s satire, having reference to the fact that few women there possess a second gown.
- an intentional heavy blow.
