MISLE'AD, verb transitive preterit tense and participle passive misled. [See Lead.]

To lead into a wrong way or path; to lead astray; to guide into error; to cause to mistake; to deceive.

Trust not servants who mislead or misinform you,

But of the two, less dangerous is th' offense,

To tire our patience, than mislead our sense.
