  Servant \Serv"ant\, n. [OE. servant, servaunt, F. servant, a &
     p. pr. of servir to serve, L. servire. See Serve, and cf.
     Sergeant.]
     1. One who serves, or does services, voluntarily or on
        compulsion; a person who is employed by another for menial
        offices, or for other labor, and is subject to his
        command; a person who labors or exerts himself for the
        benefit of another, his master or employer; a subordinate
        helper. "A yearly hired servant." --Lev. xxv. 53.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Men in office have begun to think themselves mere
              agents and servants of the appointing power, and not
              agents of the government or the country. --D.
                                                    Webster.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: In a legal sense, stewards, factors, bailiffs, and
           other agents, are servants for the time they are
           employed in such character, as they act in
           subordination to others. So any person may be legally
           the servant of another, in whose business, and under
           whose order, direction, and control, he is acting for
           the time being. --Chitty.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. One in a state of subjection or bondage.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt. --Deut. v.
                                                    15.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. A professed lover or suitor; a gallant. [Obs.]
        [1913 Webster]
  
              In my time a servant was I one.       --Chaucer.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Servant of servants, one debased to the lowest condition of
        servitude.
  
     Your humble servant, or Your obedient servant, phrases of
        civility formerly often used in closing a letter, now
        archaic; -- at one time such phrases were exaggerated to
        include Your most humble, most obedient servant.
        [1913 Webster +PJC]
  
              Our betters tell us they are our humble servants,
              but understand us to be their slaves. --Swift.
        [1913 Webster]
