  Benevolence \Be*nev"o*lence\, n. [OF. benevolence, L.
     benevolentia. See Benevolent.]
     1. The disposition to do good; good will; charitableness;
        love of mankind, accompanied with a desire to promote
        their happiness.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              The wakeful benevolence of the gospel. --Chalmers.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. An act of kindness; good done; charity given.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. A species of compulsory contribution or tax, which has
        sometimes been illegally exacted by arbitrary kings of
        England, and falsely represented as a gratuity.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: Benevolence, Beneficence, Munificence.
  
     Usage: Benevolence marks a disposition made up of a choice
            and desire for the happiness of others. Beneficence
            marks the working of this disposition in dispensing
            good on a somewhat broad scale. Munificence shows the
            same disposition, but acting on a still broader scale,
            in conferring gifts and favors. These are not
            necessarily confined to objects of immediate utility.
            One may show his munificence in presents of pictures
            or jewelry, but this would not be beneficence.
            Benevolence of heart; beneficence of life; munificence
            in the encouragement of letters.
            [1913 Webster]

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  BENEVOLENCE, duty. The doing a kind action to another, from mere good will, 
  without any legal obligation. It is a moral duty only, and it cannot be 
  enforced by law. A good wan is benevolent to the poor, but no law can compel 
  him to be so. 
  
  

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  BENEVOLENCE, English law. An aid given by the subjects to the king under a 
  pretended gratuity, but in realty it was an extortion and imposition.
