Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am on the right track with my interpretation of the word in bold in the following brief excerpt from the Brothers Grim’s “The Queen Bee”
The two elder brothers would have pulled it down, in order to see how the poor ants in their fright would run about and carry off their eggs. But the little dwarf said, 'Let the poor things enjoy themselves, I will not suffer you to trouble them.'
suffer (v) = to endure or bear, to permit; to allow, to let, to permit, to tolerate.
Thank you for your efforts.
In this context, "allow" or "permit".
