redress
[ri-dres]

1. the setting right of what is wrong: redress of abuses.
2. relief from wrong or injury.
3. compensation or satisfaction for a wrong or injury.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.

His hand placed upon his heart was unable to redress its throbbings, while, with the other he wiped the perspiration from his temples.

This intelligence, whether true or false, so roused the fiery temper of M'Lellan, that he swore, if ever he fell in with Lisa in the Indian country, he would shoot him on the spot; a mode of redress perfectly in unison with the character of the man, and the code of honor prevalent beyond the frontier.

Whoever wants to know something about me - as an artist which alone is significant - they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want.

I was about to say, no this doesn't mean to get dressed again. It turns out that it can, if pronounced ree-dress. This one above is ri-dress, or even with the stress on the first syllable.
