    Damn with faint praise, assent with civil leer,
    And without sneering teach the rest to sneer;
    Willing to wound, and yet afraid to strike,
    Just hint a fault, and hesitate dislike;
    Alike reserv'd to blame, or to commend,
    A tim'rous foe, and a suspicious friend.

And in his simple show he harbors treason.
