- drink. _Ancient Cant_, BOWSE. BOOZE, or SUCK-CASA, a public-house.
- to drink, or more properly, to use another slang term, to “lush,” viz., to drink continually, until drunk, or nearly so. The term is an old one. _Harman_, in Queen Elizabeth’s days, speaks of “BOUSING (or boozing) and belly-cheere.” _Massinger_ also speaks of BOUSE. The term was good English in the fourteenth century, and came from the _Dutch_, BUYZEN, to tipple.
