"pintail duck," 1660s, reduced from earlier smeath (1620s), probably from Middle Dutch smeente.
In 1841 smee employed his battery for electro-plating with various metals.
Twice smee beat upon the instrument, and then stopped to listen gleefully.
For long he muttered to himself, staring at smee, who was hemming placidly, under the conviction that all children feared him.
Of this, as of almost everything else, smee was quite unconscious.
Instead, he revolved this mystery in his mind: why do they find smee lovable?
smee had pleasant names for everything, and his cutlass was Johnny Corkscrew, because he wiggled it in the wound.
Mr. smee has done good service to the cause of rational philosophy.
The pirates disappeared among the trees, and in a moment their captain and smee were alone.
smee, as the Captain's wily lieutenant was called, was overjoyed at this plan, and chuckled loudly.
The corkscrew of smee got Tootles in the fourth rib, but he was himself pinked in turn by Curly.
