"[ letter from Boswell to Johnson, responding to the latter"s contention that there existed no adequate "Life" of Thomson] Since I received your letter I have read his [Thomson"s] ""Life"", published under the name of Cibber, but as you told me, really written by a Mr. Shiels; that written by Dr. Murdoch; one prefixed to an edition of the ""Seasons"", published at Edinburgh, which is compounded of both, with the addition of an anecdote of Quin"s relieving Thomson from prison; the abridgement of Murdoch"s account of him, in the ""Biographia Britannica"", and another abridgement of it in the ""Biographical Dictionary"", enriched with Dr. Joseph Warton"s critical panegyrick on the ""Seasons"" in his ""Essay on the Genius and Writings of Pope"": from all these it appears to me that we have a pretty full account of this poet."
