BA’CKFRIEND. n.s. [from back and friend.] A friend back-
wards; that is, an enemy in secret.
Set the restless importunities of talebearers and backfriends
against fair words and professions. L’Estrange.
Far is our church from encroaching upon the civil power;
as some who are backfriends to both, would maliciously insinu-
ate. South.
