Mrs. Squall, claiming the brood because her hen had spent three weeks of valuable time in warming them into existence, proceeded without delay to replevy them.
-- Charles J Scofield, A Subtle Adversary; A Tale of Callitso County
"You can't replevy everything to the Judgment Day and expect the Angel Gabriel to settle all your debts in gold coin at a discount and all your debts in gold coin at a discount and all interest waived."
-- Robert Penn Warren, World enough and time: a romantic novel
Replevy originates in the Old French replevir, "to bail out."
