Evidence

"Before dinner Dr. Johnson seized upon Mr. Charles Sheridan"s ""Account of the late Revolution in Sweden"", and seemed to read it ravenously, as if he devoured it, which was to all appearance his method of studying. ""He knows how to read better than any one (said Mrs. Knowles;) he gets at the substance of a book directly; he tears out the heart of it"". He kept it wrapt up in the tablecloth in his lap during the time of dinner, from an avidity to have one entertainment in readiness when he should have finished another; resembling (if I may use so coarse a simile) a dog who holds a bone in his paws in reserve, while he eats something else which has been thrown to him."
