This and the following entries through 15 April are from D/CFA/1, which the diarist called an “Index.” For a description of CFA’s MS Diaries see the Introduction.


CFA’s set of Samuel Johnson’s Works, 12 vols., London, 1823, is in the Stone Library, but he apparently did not own it at this time. See entry for 17 July, below. Perhaps he read JA’s copy of Samuel Johnson, The Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets, London, 1783, which is among JA’s books in the Boston Public Library ( Catalogue of JA’s Library , p. 131).
