For example, a tenant that is late with the rent may pay the amount and avoid eviction by curing the breach. (B) A restoration to health. 2. A person who had quitted the habit of drunkenness for the space of nine months, in consequence of medicines he had taken, and who had lost his appetite for ardent spirits, was held to have been cured. 3. In a figurative sense, to cure is to remedy any defect; as, an informal statement of the plaintiff’s cause of action in his declaration is cured by verdict, provided it be substantially stated.
