Regulars (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Regulars

Share of the booty. The coves cracked the swell’s crib, fenced the swag, and each cracksman napped his regular; some fellows broke open a gentleman’s house, and after selling the property which they had stolen, they divided the money between them.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
