How interesting is the use of bayte.The Oxford dictionary gives bait as 'a snack on a journey' and 'feed for a horse' as two of the word's meanings. Webster seems to have not come across such meanings for bait.

I had always taken it to be local slang. So, Sam had his bait-time too three hundred years ago.
