Legree took a silent note of Tom's availability. He rated him as a first-class hand; and yet he felt a secret dislike to him, – the native antipathy of bad to good. He saw, plainly, that when, as was often the case, his violence and brutality fell on the helpless. Tom took notice of it; for, so subtle is the atmosphere of opinion, that it will make itself felt, without words; and the opinion even of a slave may annoy a master. (33.2)

Simon Legree is sensitive to Tom’s silent judgment of his violent behavior, even though he feels no real remorse for what he does.
