            leading naturally to the result which followed; as, he
            was absent when I called, and I accordingly left my
            card; our preparations were all finished, and we
            accordingly set sail. Consequently all finished, and
            we accordingly set sail. Consequently marks a closer
            connection, that of logical or causal sequence; as,
            the papers were not ready, and consequently could not
            be signed.
            [1913 Webster]
