- complaisaunce (obsolete, rare)
- The quality of being complaisant, amiable or agreeable.
- 1749, Henry Fielding, The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling:
- It is no wonder that in an age when this kind of merit is so little in fashion, and so slenderly provided for, persons possessed of it should very eagerly flock to a place where they were sure of being received with great complaisance; indeed, where they might enjoy almost the same advantages of a liberal fortune as if they were entitled to it in their own right.
