freedom or openness. Hence it may, in certain
connections, be used as synonymous with any or all of
the above-mentioned words, as will be seen from the
following examples: One who delivers a package gives
it forth; one who delivers a cargo discharges it; one
who delivers a captive liberates him; one who delivers
a message or a discourse utters or pronounces it; when
