Abraham-man (plural Abraham-men)

  1. Alternative form of Abraham man
    • 1883, Pyle, Howard, “Robin Hood Turns Beggar”, in The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood[1], page 203:
      Said the Beggar: "I marvel not that thou hast taken a liking to my manner of life, good fellow, but 'to like' and 'to do' are two matters of different sorts. I tell thee, friend, one must serve a long apprenticeship ere one can learn to be even so much as a clapper-dudgeon, much less a crank or an Abraham-man. You are probably too old to get the hang of it."
