- "The following Jeu d'Esprit was written by Sir Joshua Reynolds to illustrate a remark he had made, 'That Dr. Johnson considered Garrick as his property, and would never suffer any one to praise or abuse him but himself.' In the first of these supposed dialogues, Sir Joshua himself, by high encomiums upon Garrick, is represented as drawing down upon him Johnson's censure; in the second, Mr. Gibbon, by taking the opposite side, calls forth his praise"--T.p. verso.
