King James Dictionary
TEND'ER, n. from tend. One that attends or takes care of a nurse.
1. A small vessel employed to attend a larger one for supplying her with provisions and other stores, or to convey intelligence and the like.
2. In law, an offer, either of money to pay a debt, or of service to be performed, in order to save a penalty or forfeiture which would be incurred by non-payment or non-performance as the tender of rent due, or of the amount of a note or bond with interest. To constitute a legal tender, such money must be offered as the law prescribes the offer of bank notes is not a legal tender. So also the tender must be at the time and place where the rent or debt ought to be paid, and it must be to the full amount due.
There is also a tender of issue in pleadings, a tender of an oath, &c.
3. Any offer for acceptance. The gentleman made me a tender of his services.
