Frank is variously dishonest. He thinks nothing of lying to explain his presence in Morris'  neighborhood. It is a small dishonesty, but it is antithetical to Morris' straightforwardness and  trustfulness, thereby preparing us for the grossness of Frank's stealing from such a person. Here  Frank's incidental dishonesty has some similarity to Ward Minogue's immorality, his total disregard  for the integrity of other people. When Frank asks Morris to hire him, his claim that he is completely  honest represents a partial intention, not a reality. Frank would like to be honest and would like to be  thought of as honest, but he has not yet learned the value and meaning of a consistent integrity.  Frank's claim also represents a somewhat childish rationalization that his best intentions are  somehow a reality.
