"On Saturday, April 25, I dined with him at Sir Joshua Reynolds"s, with the learned Dr. Musgrave, Counsellor Leland of Ireland, son to the historian, Mrs. Cholmondeley, and some more ladies. ""The Project"", a new poem, was read to the company by Dr. Musgrave. JOHNSON. ""Sir, it has no power. Were it not for the well-known names with which it is filled, it would be nothing: the names carry the poet, not the poet the names."" MUSGRAVE. ""A temporary poem always entertains us"". JOHNSON. ""So does an account of the criminals hanged yesterday entertain us""."
