    His foibles!

    what does this expression mean?

    To give his foibles to someone.

    That doesn't make much sense to me. I only knew one definition of "foible" which was a slight flaw or weakness of character, which someone wouldn't be able to "give to someone". I also found that it's the weakest part of a sword blade, but that doesn't make sense either.

    Can we have more context? Can you post the whole sentence or part of the paragraph from which you took this?

    I'm equally stymied.
