' Dr. Johnson Today'
S. C. ROBERTS
Among men of letters, Dr. Johnson was a greater character than any they ever put in their books, with the exception of the diarist,
Boswell. Samuel Johnson was born in 1709, won fame at Oxford for his learning, but had to leave without taking a degree because he was so wretchedly poor. He had to become a hack writer, but even so, was more than once arrested for debt. He was insensible to music, slovenly in dress, had a habit of touching the posts with which the streets of his day were lined. He was physically strong and morally brave. He loved the Church and Tories, tea and late hours, London streets and taverns, and never forgot to tip the waiter. A pension made the last twenty years of his life tolerable, and he became a literary lion of London.
Every year on the anniversary of his death, December 13, 1784, the Johnson Society meet at dinner. - This is usually held at his house, but this year it is to be held at one of the taverns he loved.
Tonight Mr. S. C. Roberts is coming straight from it to take part in an imaginary discussion between Johnson and Boswell, which he has written from the point of view Dr. Johnson might have had if he had been living today.
Mr. S. C.
