Webster's 1913 Dictionary
  1. \En*dorse"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Endorsed}; p. pr. &
    vb. n. {Endorsing}.] [Formerly endosse, fr. F. endosser to
    put on the back, to endorse; pref. en- (L. in) + dos back, L.
    dorsum. See {Dorsal}, and cf. {Indorse}.]
    Same as {Indorse}.
    Note: Both endorse and indorse are used by good writers; but
          the tendency is to the more general use of indorse and
          its derivatives indorsee, indorser, and indorsement.
  2. \En*dorse"\, n. (Her.)
    A subordinary, resembling the pale, but of one fourth its
    width (according to some writers, one eighth).
