Citations for beek
"Galen, you and the lads go beek yourselves by fireside." Deborah MacGillivray, One Snowy Knight
I ran towards him-but I remember no more,-though at times something crosses my mind, and I have wild visions of roofless walls, and a crowd of weeping women and silent men digging among ashes, and a beautiful body, all dropping wet, brought on a deal from the mill-dam, and of men, as it was carried by, seizing me by the arms and tying my hands,-and then I fancy myself in a house fastened to a chair;-and sometimes I think I was lifted out and placed to beek in the sun and to taste the fresh air. John Galt, Ringan Gilhaize: or, The covenanters
