I'm kind of stuck on 19ac. See shrink with condition (7). I've got W?T?E?S. So answer could be WITNESS as in 'see' but where does shrink with condition come in. WITHERS suits shrink but not the rest of the clue. Any enlightenment, anybody?

I think WITNESS is the answer. Shrink the word with and -ness according to Chambers is a conditioning of a word. and that fits with see

Thank you Keith. I think I'll have to treat myself to a Chambers dictionary. Cheers, Andy
