Misprise definitions

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

MISPRI'SE
MISPRISION, n. misprizh'un. [supra.] Neglect; contempt.
1. In law, any high offense under the degree of capital, but nearly bordering thereon. Misprision is contained in every treason and felony. Misprisions are divided into negative and positive; negative, which consist in the concealment of something which ought to be revealed; and positive, which consist in the commission of something which ought not to be done. Misprision of treason, consists in a bare knowledge and concealment of treason, without assenting to it.
Maladministration in offices of high public trust, is a positive misprision.
1. Mistake; oversight; contempt. [Not in use.]
