Webster's 1828 Dictionary

AGREE', verb intransitive [Latin gratia. the primary sense is advancing, from the same root as Latin gradior.]

1. To be of one mind; to harmonize in opinion.

In the expediency of the law, all the parties agree

2. To live in concord, or without contention; as, parents and children agree well together.

3. To yield assent; to approve or admit; followed by to; as, to agree to an offer, or to an opinion.

4. To settle by stipulation, the minds of parties being agreed, as to the terms; as,

Didst thou not agree with me for a penny a day? Matthew 20:13

To agree on articles of partnership

5. To come to a compromise of differences; to be reconciled.

AGREE with thy adversary quickly. Matthew 5:25

6. To come to one opinion or mind; to concur; as, to agree on a place of meeting.

This sense differs not essentially from the fourth, and it often implies a resolving to do an act. John 9:22.

7. To be consistent; to harmonize; not to contradict, or be repugnant.

Their witness agreed not together. Mark 14:56.

This story agrees with what has been related by others.

8. To resemble; to be similar; as, the picture does not agree with the original.

9. To suit; to be accommodated or adapted to; as, the same food does not agree with every constitution.

AGREE', verb transitive To admit, or come to one mind concerning; as, to agree the fact. Also, to reconcile or make friends; to put an end to variance; but these senses are unusual and hardly legitimate. Let the parties agree the fact, is really elliptical; let them agree on the fact.

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

AGREEABIL'ITY, noun Easiness of disposition. [Not used.]

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

AGREE'ABLE, adjective

1. Suitable; conformable; correspondent; consistent with; as, the practice of virtue is agreeable to the law of God and our own nature.

2. In pursuance of; in conformity with; as, agreeable to the order of the day, the house took up the report of the committee. It is not correctly followed by with. In this sense, some writers use agreeably, for agreeable but in violation of the true principles of construction; for the word is an adjective or attribute, in agreement with the last clause of the sentence. The house took up the report of a committee, (which taking up was) agreeable to the order of the day. The use of agreeably in this sentence would pervert the sense.

3. Pleasing, either to the mind or senses; as, agreeable manners; fruit agreeable to the taste.

Webster's 1828 Dictionary


1. Suitableness; conformity; consistency; as, the agreeableness of virtue to the laws of God.

2. The quality of pleasing; that quality which gives satisfaction or moderate pleasure to the mind or senses; as, an agreeableness of manners; there is an agreeableness in the taste of certain fruits. This is the usual sense of the word.

3. Resemblance; likeness; with to or between; as,

The agreeableness between man and other parts of creation. obsolete

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

AGREE'ABLY, adverb

1. Pleasingly; in an agreeable manner; in a manner to give pleasure; as, to be agreeably entertained with a discourse.

2. Suitably; consistently; conformably;

The effect of which is, that marriages grow less frequent, agreeably to the maxim above laid down.

This is a gross error, proceeding from mistake. agreeably signifies, in an agreeable manner; but this is not the sense, nor does the word modify the verb grow. The sense is, marriages grow less frequent, which [fact, or whole member of the sentence, or proposition] is agreeable to the maxim above laid down. This use of agreeably is common, but grossly erroneous.

3. Alike; in the same manner.

Both armed agreeably obsolete

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

AGREE'D, participle passive

1. Being in concord or harmony of opinion; of one mind.

Can two walk together except they be agreed? Amos 3:3.

2. Assented to; admitted; as, a proposition is agreed to.

3. Settled by consent; implying bargain or contract; as, the terms were agreed to, or agreed upon.
