    in good set terms

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?
    …I met a fool,
    Who laid him down and bask’s him in the sun,
    And rail’d on Lady Fortune in good terms,
    In good terms, and yet a motley fool. (W. Shakespeare, “As You Like It”)

    He drew it up in good set terms, like one who had his senses much at his command. (W. Scott, “The Surgeon’s Daughter”)

    in good set terms = clear, decisively

    Re: in good set terms


    I don't know what "in good set terms" mean, but I have heard of "in good terms" before.

    Most of the time, it refers to good relationship between two or more people when they wanted to make an agreement on something.
