FRANKALMOIGNE, n. The tenure by which a religious corporation holds lands on condition of praying for the soul of the donor.

"Ay," said the officer, coldly, "an ye will not pray him thence for naught he must e'en roast." "But look you, my son," persisted the good man, "this act hath rank as robbery of God!"
