corrupter (plural corrupters)

    • 1749, Henry Fielding, The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling
      Can love, which always seeks the good of its object, attempt to betray a woman into a bargain where she is so greatly to be the loser? If such corrupter, therefore, should have the impudence to pretend a real affection for her, ought not the woman to regard him [] as the worst of all enemies []  ?
