Johnson and Wilkes





In his English Grammar, prefixed to his Dictionary,
Johnson had written--"_He_ seldom, perhaps never, begins any but the first

syllable." Wilkes published some remarks upon this dictum, commencing: "The

author of this observation must be a man of quick appre-_he_nsion, and of a

most compre-_he_nsive genius."
