THE CHESHIRE CHEESE TAVERN
Wine Office Court, Fleet Street Although this tavern is not mentioned by Boswell in his "Life of Johnson," it is, traditionally, believed to have been one of the sage's haunts. Cyrus Redding, in his “Fifty Years' Recollections, Literary and Personal," 1858, says, “I often dined at the Cheshire Cheese. Johnson and his friends, I was informed, used to do the same, and I was told I should see individuals who had met them there. Johnson had been dead above twenty years, but there were Fleet Street tradesmen who well remembered both Johnson and Goldsmith in those places of entertainment."
A TOUR IN THE MIDLANDS
Johnson Starts on his Journey to the Midlands with Boswell—Mr. Gwyn, the Architect-Johnson and
Boswell at Oxford-University College-Dr. Wetherell—Pembroke College-Dr. Adams-Phil Jones and Fludyer-Dr. Bentham-Dr. Horne-Walton's Lives"-Thomas Warton—Robert and James Dodsley—Dr. John Campbell—Steele—“Tristram Shandy"-Edmund Burke-At Blenheim-Inns and Taverns-Shenstone-Dyer's Fleece ”—Grainger's “Sugar Cane”—Dr. Percy–At Birmingham-Mr. Hector and Mr. Lloyd-Quakers—Mrs. Careless— Lichfield—Three Crowns Inn—Lucy Porter-Peter Garrick—Harry Jackson-Oat-ale—Garrick-Richard Green
Rev. Thos. Seward-Miss Seward—Death of Mr. Thrale's Son-Mrs. Aston—Marriage. On Tuesday, March 19, which was fixed for our proposed jaunt, we met in the morning at the Somerset coffee-house in the Strand, where we were taken up by the Oxford Coach. He was accompanied by Mr. Gwyn, the architect; and a gentleman of Merton college, whom we did not know, had the fourth seat. We soon got into conversation ; for it was very remarkable of Johnson that the presence of a stranger had no restraint upon his talk. I observed that Garrick, who was about to quit the stage, would soon have an easier life. JOHNSON: “I doubt that, Sir." BOSWELL : “Why, Sir, he will be Atlas with the burden off his back.” JOHNSON : “But I know not, Sir, if he will be so steady without his load. However, he should never play any more, but be entirely the gentleman, and not partly the player: he should no longer subject himself to be hissed by a mob, or to be insolently treated by performers, whom he used to rule with a high hand, and who would gladly retaliate." BOSWELL: “I From an engraving by J. Greig think he should

decayed actors, as it has been said he means to do.” JOHNSON : “Alas, Sir! he will soon be a decayed actor himself.”
Johnson expressed his disapprobation of ornamental architecture, such as magnificent columns supporting a portico, or expensive pilasters supporting merely their own capitals, “ because it consumes labour disproportionate to its utility. For the same reason he satirised statuary. Painting (said he) consumes labour not disproportionate to its effect; but a fellow will hack half a year at a block of marble, to make something in stone that hardly resembles a man. The value of statuary is owing to its difficulty. You would not value the finest head cut upon a carrot.” Here he seemed to me to be strangely deficient in taste; for, surely, statuary is a noble art of imitation, and preserves a wonderful expression of the varieties of the human frame; and although it must be allowed that the circumstances of difficulty enhance the value of a marble head, we should consider that, if it requires a long time in the performance, it has a proportionate value in durability.
Gwyn was a fine, lively, rattling fellow. Dr. Johnson kept him in subjection, but with a kindly authority. The spirit of the artist, however, rose against what he thought a Gothic attack, and he made a brisk defence. “What, Sir! will you allow no value to beauty in architecture or in statuary? Why should we allow it then in writing ? Why do you take the trouble to give us so many fine allusions, and bright images, and elegant phrases? You might convey all your instruction without these ornaments.” Johnson smiled with complacency; but said, “Why, , Sir, all these ornaments are useful, because they obtain an easier reception for truth ; but a building is not at all more convenient for being decorated with superfluous carved work."
Gwyn at last was lucky enough to make one reply to Dr. Johnson which he allowed to be excellent. Johnson censured him for taking down a church which might have stood many years, and building a new one at a different place, for no other reason but that there might be a direct road to a new bridge ; and his expression was, “ You are taking a church out of the way, that the people may go in a straight line to the bridge.”—“No, Sir (said Gwyn), I am putting the church in the way that the people may not go out of the way.” JOHNSON (with a hearty loud laugh of approbation) : “Speak no more. Rest your colloquial fame upon this."
Upon our arrival at Oxford, Dr. Johnson and I went directly to University College, but were disappointed on finding that one of the fellows, his friend Mr. Scott, who accompanied him from Newcastle to Edinburgh, was gone to the country. We put up at the Angel Inn, and passed the evening by ourselves in easy and familiar conversation. Talking of constitutional melancholy, he observed, “A man so afflicted, Sir, must divert distressing thoughts, and not combat with them.” BOSWELL : May not he think them down, Sir ? " JOHNSON : “No, Sir. To attempt to think them down is madness. He should have a lamp constantly burning in his bed-chamber during the night, and if wakefully disturbed, take a book and read, and compose himself to rest. To have the management of the mind is a great art, and it may be attained in a considerable degree by experience and habitual exercise.” BOSWELL : “Should not he provide amusements for himself ? Would it not, for instance, be right for him to take a course of chemistry?” Johnson : “Let him take a course of chemistry or a course of rope-dancing, or a course of anything to which he is inclined at the time. Let him contrive to have as many retreats for his mind as he can, as many things to which it can fly from itself. Burton's “ Anatomy of Melancholy' is a valuable work. It is, perhaps, overloaded
