Usage examples for incite
There are also statutes applying and very greatly extending the old common- law doctrine of loss of service; making it highly criminal for a neighbor to incite a servant or employee to break his contract or even to accept the work of a laborer without ascertaining that he has not broken such contract, as, for instance, by a certificate of discharge from his last master. – Popular Law-making by Frederic Jesup Stimson
