To Lick (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

To Lick

To beat; also to wash, or to paint slightly over. I’ll give you a good lick o’ the chops; I’ll give you a good stroke or blow on the face. Jack tumbled into a cow t—d, and nastied his best clothes, for which his father stept up, and licked him neatly.—I’ll lick you! the dovetail to which is, If you lick me all over, you won’t miss—.
