Opportunely definitions

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

OPPORTU'NELY, adv. Seasonably; at a time favorable for the purpose. It has been applied to place, as well as to time, but its proper application is to time, and hence it accords with seasonably, rather than with conveniently.

adv
1: at an opportune time; "he arrived rather opportunely just when we needed a new butler" [ant: inopportunely, malapropos]
