Justness \Just"ness\, n.
   The quality of being just; conformity to truth, propriety,
   accuracy, exactness, and the like; justice; reasonableness;
   fairness; equity; as, justness of proportions; the justness
   of a description or representation; the justness of a cause.
   [1913 Webster]

         In value the satisfaction I had in seeing it
         represented with all the justness and gracefulness of
         action.                                  --Dryden.
   [1913 Webster]

   Note: Justness is properly applied to things, and justice to
         persons; but the distinction is not always observed.

        reasonableness; equity; uprightness; justice.
        [1913 Webster]
