RESIGNv.t. To renounce an honor for an advantage. To renounce an advantage for a greater advantage.

‘Twas rumored Leonard Wood had signed
A true renunciation
Of title, rank and every kind
Of military station —
Each honorable station.

By his example fired — inclined
To noble emulation,
The country humbly was resigned
To Leonard’s resignation —
His Christian resignation.
