Suffer

When the ground thus dearly wrung from the grasp of luxury came to be covered…over and above nine hundred roomy chambers for so many persons to lie in, three other different classes of apartments were to be provided…for them to work in, to pray in, and to suffer in! Jeremy Bentham, The Panopticon Writings, 1787.
