Such was the number and variety of the prose works of this extraordinary man, which I have been able to discover, and am at liberty to mention'; but we ought to keep in mind, that there must undoubtedly have been many more which are yet concealed; and we may add to the account, the numerous letters which he wrote, of which a considerable part are yet unpublished. It is hoped that those persons, in whose possession they are, will favour the world with them.

James BosweLL.

(This is a strange phrase. What work could it have been that Mr. Boswell was not at liberty to mention ? That there was some peculiar meaning here can hardly be doubted. li perhaps may allude to some publications of a jacobite tendency, written in Johnson's earlier days, and which may have been acknowledged in confidence to Boswell; but this is a mere conjecture. Many of the articles inserted in the foregoing list on internal evidence (particularly those from the magazines) are of very little im. portance, and of very doubtful authenticity. -Ed.)
