I'm reading a novel by John Galsworthy written at the beginning of the twentieth century and I've come across this sentence:
The Board meeting had been long and "snadgy"--a final settling of that Pillin business.
I don't really know what "snadgy" is (the quotation marks haven't been added by me, but are in the original text). My guess from the context is that it is something like "difficult" or "tricky", but I haven't found it in any reliable resource.
Could anyone help me understand this?
