Endorsed
Endorse 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}. [1913 Webster]

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. [1913 Webster]
