    “Done because we are too menny" What is the meaning of 'menny'

    Hello.

    I've read that quote by Thomas Hardy.

    But I can't find what 'menny' means any dictionary.

    Please let me know that mean.

    Thank you.

    This sentence is from "Jude the Obscure".

    The word "menny" appears to be an alternate spelling of "many". These two words would likely be pronounced the same way.
