Loving your work Dr J. #lyw

Amazing to see the plaque for Francis Barber. Also amazing to rediscover how enlightened of a man was Johnson for his time. "When making his will, Johnson asked Sir John Hawkins, later his first biographer, what provision he should make for Barber. Sir John said that a nobleman would give 50 pounds a year. Then I shall be "noblissimus" replied Johnson, and give him 70. Hawkins disapproved, and after Johnson's death criticised his "ostentatious bounty". The bequest was indeed widely covered in the press. Johnson, in fact, left £750 in the trust of his friend from which to pay an annuity." #lyw

Both of these belonged to James Boswell; one is for Ale and one is for coffee. No prizes for guessing which way round! #exhibition #londonexhibition #jamesboswell #museum #londonmuseum #history #historylover #fleetstreet #lyw
