OF this tragedy, the production of Joseph Reed, author of the Register

Office, Mr. Nicholls, in his Literary Anecdotes, gives some curious

particulars. He also relates an anecdote of Johnson concerning it: It

happened that I was in Bolt Court on the day that Henderson, the justly

celebrated actor, was first introduced to Dr. Johnson: and the

conversation turning on dramatic subjects, Henderson asked the Doctor's

opinion of Dido and its author. Sir, said Johnson, I never did the

man an injury, yet he would read his tragedy to me.
