  MAIM, pleadings. This is a technical word necessary to be introduced into 
  all indictments for mayhem; the words "feloniously did maim," must of 
  necessity be inserted, because no other word, or any circumlocution, will 
  answer the same purpose. 4 Inst. 118; Hawk. B. 2, c. 23, s. 17, 18, 77; 
  Hawk. B. 2, c. 25, s, 55; 1 Chit. Cr. Law, *244.
