    • suttle Light; in the light weight previous to the additional goods delivered for tret. Since tret went out of use, very long ago, though continued in the arithmetic books, it has come to be wrongly stated to be a deduction, instead of an addition not to the number of pounds but to the amount of goods delivered; and suttle is sometimes erroneously called a noun.
