Sice

(1 syl.). A sizing, an allowance of bread and butter. “He'll print for a sice.” In the University of Cambridge the men call the pound loaf, two inches of butter, and pot of milk allowed for breakfast, their “sizings;” and when one student breakfasts with another in the same college, the bed-maker carries his sizings to the rooms of the entertainers. (See Sizings.)
