From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Countervail \Coun`ter*vail"\ (koun`t?r-v?l"), v. t. [imp. & p.
      p. {Countervailed} (-v?ld); p. pr. & vb. n.
      {Countervailing}.] [OF. contrevaloir; contre (L. contra) +
      valoir to avail, fr. L. valere to be strong, avail. See
      {Vallant}.]
      To act against with equal force, power, or effect; to thwart
      or overcome by such action; to furnish an equivalent to or
      for; to counterbalance; to compensate.
  
               Upon balancing the account, the profit at last will
               hardly countervail the inconveniences that go allong
               with it.                                                --L'Estrange.
