From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   Hearty \Heart"y\, a. [Compar. {Heartier}; superl. {Heartiest}.]
      1. Pertaining to, or proceeding from, the heart; warm;
            cordial; bold; zealous; sincere; willing; also, energetic;
            active; eager; as, a hearty welcome; hearty in supporting
            the government.
                     Full of hearty tears For our good father's loss.
      2. Exhibiting strength; sound; healthy; firm; not weak; as, a
            hearty timber.
      3. Promoting strength; nourishing; rich; abundant; as, hearty
            food; a hearty meal.
      Syn: Sincere; real; unfeigned; undissembled; cordial;
               earnest; warm; zealous; ardent; eager; active; vigorous.
      Usage: {Hearty}, {Cordial}, {Sincere}. Hearty implies honesty
                  and simplicity of feelings and manners; cordial refers
                  to the warmth and liveliness with which the feelings
                  are expressed; sincere implies that this expression
                  corresponds to the real sentiments of the heart. A man
                  should be hearty in his attachment to his friends,
                  cordial in his reception of them to his house, and
                  sincere in his offers to assist them.
