adjective

Abominable, detestable, abhorrent; very bad.

But is an enemy so execrable that though in captivity his wishes and comforts are to be disregarded and even crossed? I think not. It is for the benefit of mankind to mitigate the horrors of war as much as possible.

—Thomas Jefferson Letter to Patrick Henry, March 27, 1779 The Papers of Thomas Jefferson (1950)
