Bounty; a generous disposition of mind, exerting itself in giving largely. It is thus distinguished from generosity and bounty:

Liberality implies acts of mere giving or spending; generosity, acts of greatness; bounty, acts of kindness. Liberality is a natural disposition; generosity proceeds from elevation of sentiment; bounty, from religious motives. Liberality denotes freedom of spirit; generosity, greatness of soul, bounty, openness of heart.
