deed (n.)
performance, action
AW III.vi.88 [Bertram to Lords, of Parolles] do you think he will make no deed at all of this that so seriously he does address himself unto
Ham I.iii.27 [Laertes to Ophelia, of Hamlet's love] It fits your wisdom so far to believe it / As he in his particular act and place / May give his saying deed [i.e. turn his words into actions]
KL I.i.71 [Regan to Lear, of Gonerill] I find she names my very deed of love [also: contract]
Tim V.i.25 [Painter to Poet] the deed of saying is quite out of use [i.e. the carrying out of a promise]
