“Mace” is the “aril” or covering of the seed of the same plant.
The pulp is of the nature of an aril, that is, an additional seed-coat.
The aril is a growth from the extremity of the seed-stalk, or from the placenta when there is no seed-stalk.
This aril or husk is the mace of commerce, while the true nutmeg is the center or hard seed (nut).
By the end of Aril, the several armies seemed to be ready, and the general forward movement on Corinth began.
