add_Boswell., but see the letter in the Appendix. 49, note 1,-1.8, for etiam is, read-etiamsi. - 72,-1. 9,

for December, read-September. - 87, note 1,-1. 5, for tranquilly, read-tranquillity: 117, note 1,

Perhaps the Scotch nonjuring Bishop Campbell was

the person meant. See vol. iii. p. 53. 127, note 1, . add- Lord St. Helens has since confirmed to the

editor, on the authority of his father, an eyewitness, Dr. Johnson's failure at the Society

of Arts. - 145,-1.35, . This friend was Mr. Cullen, advocate, son of the

celebrated physician, afterwards a judge, by the

for 1824, read - 1822. 178, note 2, add-Colonel Cecil was probably the well-known

librarian of his college, and a perfect Magliabechi in dirt and condition, see ante, vol. i. p. 302. It is odd too that Magliabechi's portrait was ex

second viscount, sometimes called “the French Lord Powerscourt," was here meant, and not

his nephew Richard. 182, note 1; 270, note, 1. 9; 271, note; 424, note, add-BOSWELL.
