Ever heard or used this word before?

Yesterday, I came across the word "slake" in a book I'm currently reading on Thomas Jefferson.

I'd never heard or used the word before, prompting me to look up its meaning.

It turns out that slake means to satisfy a craving, to quench.

For example, when you want to slake your thirst, you may drink from a fountain or grab a can of soda.

Other synonyms include satisfy, sate, assuage, and allay.

Had you ever heard of the word before reading this post?
