   Syn: To Commit, Intrust, Consign.

   Usage: These words have in common the idea of transferring
          from one's self to the care and custody of another.
          Commit is the widest term, and may express only the
          general idea of delivering into the charge of another;
          as, to commit a lawsuit to the care of an attorney; or
          it may have the special sense of intrusting with or
          without limitations, as to a superior power, or to a
          careful servant, or of consigning, as to writing or
          paper, to the flames, or to prison. To intrust denotes
          the act of committing to the exercise of confidence or
          trust; as, to intrust a friend with the care of a
          child, or with a secret. To consign is a more formal
          act, and regards the thing transferred as placed
          chiefly or wholly out of one's immediate control; as,
          to consign a pupil to the charge of his instructor; to
          consign goods to an agent for sale; to consign a work
          to the press.
          [1913 Webster]
