dele that note, and substitute—It appears from part
of the original journal in Mr. Anderdon's papers,
that the friend who told the story was Mr. Beau-
clerk, and the gentleman and lady alluded to
were Mr. (probably Henry) and Miss Harvey.
There is reason to fear that Mr. Boswell's in-
discretion in betraying Mr. Beauclerk's name
a little impaired the cordiality between him and
Dr. Johnson.

between idea and unconstitutional, insert—as.
fill up the blank with-Beauclerk.

on four peers, add note-[The occasion was Mr.
Horne's writ of error in 1778.-ED.]

dele note 2.

· for White, read- Whyte.

add-Though the editor was assured, from what he thought good authority, that Mr. Damer was here alluded to, he has since reason to suppose that another and more respectable name was meant, which, however, without more certainty, he does not venture to mention.
