"The King then asked him if there were any other literary journals published in this kingdom, except the ""Monthly"" and ""Critical Reviews""; and on being answered there was no other, his Majesty asked which of them was the best: Johnson answered, that the ""Monthly Review"" was done with most care, the ""Critical"" upon the best principles; adding that the authors of the ""Monthly Review"" were enemies to the Church. This the King said he was sorry to hear. The conversation next turned on the Philosophical Transactions, when Johnson observed that they had now a better method of arranging their materials than formerly. ""Aye, (said the King,) they are obliged to Dr. Johnson for that ;"" for his Majesty had heard and remembered the circumstance, which Johnson himself had forgot."
