A Commonplace Entry

Life of Dr. Johnson

"What I consider as the peculiar value of the following work, is, the quantity it contains of Johnson's conversation;  which is universally acknowledged to have been eminently instructive  and entertaining;  and of which the specimens that I have given upon a former occasion, have been received with so much approbation, that I have good grounds for supposing that the world will not be indifferent to more ample communications of a similar nature."
