    healthy

    Hi,

    What does the "healthy" mean in this sentence? Or it only means healthy, I mean it has no special meaning, just means "healthy" (good physical condition)


    The milkmaid was a healthy wench.


    Thanks a lot

    On its face, it is saying that she is in good physical condition.

    Dude, am I ruffling your feathers? If you have confidence in my sincerity asking question here, just trust me when I say.

    Here is the source and I know "healthy" is open to other meanings.
