Dis*qual`i*fi*ca"tion (?), n.
The act of disqualifying, or state of being disqualified; want of qualification; incompetency; disability; as, the disqualification of men for holding certain offices.

I must still retain the consciousness of those disqualifications which you have been pleased to overlook.
