We are bound to protest against wrongdoing in any form; and our protest, if distinct and well directed, always tends to good. To be silent in certain circumstances makes us the accomplice of sin; to speak out frees us from responsibility.

His faith was so abundant that he made the case of his protege his own, and would not suffer the breath of suspicion to be directed against him.
