company, and of the party almost throughout. It has given very general fatisfaction ; and those who have found most fault with a paffage here and there, have agreed that they could not help going through, and being entertained through the whole. I wish, indeed, some few gross expressions had been softened, and a few of our hero's foibles had been a little more shaded ; but it is useful to see the weaknesses incident to great minds; and you have given us Dr. Johnson's authority that in history all ought to be told."

Such a fanction to my faculty of giving a just representation of Dr. Johnson I could not conceal. Nor will I suppress my fatisfaction in the consciousness, that by recording fo considerable a portion of the wisdom and wit of the brightest ornament of the cighteenth century *,” I have largely provided for the instruction and entertainment of mankind.
