Excerpt from Dr. Johnson: His Religious Life and His Death

Politically speaking, it must be expected that there should be many who will not agree with Dr. Johnson. But these hold him dear in memory. Leigh Hunt, in one of his interesting and enter taining worksfi'i when excusmg Johnson's pompous manner, says, At all events, one is willingto think the best of what was accompanied by so much excellence. Afiectation it was not: for nobody despised pretension of any kind more than he did. Johnson was a sort of born bishop in his way, with high judgments and cathedral notions lording it in his mind, and em cat/weird he accordingly spoke. This born bishop is a felicitous term. He advanced, says Leigh Hunt again, by the power of his conversation, the strictness of his veracity, and the respect he exacted towards his presence, What may be called the personal dignity of literature. The conse quence has been not exactly what he expected.
