Evidence

"We had a quiet comfortable meeting at Mr. Dilly"s; nobody there but ourselves. Mr. Dilly mentioned somebody having wished that Milton"s ""Tractate on Education"" should be printed along with his Poems in the edition of ""The English Poets"" then going on. JOHNSON. ""It would be breaking in upon the plan; but would be of no great consequence. So far as it would be any thing, it would be wrong. Education in England has been in danger of being hurt by two of its greatest men, Milton and Locke. Milton"s plan is impracticable, and I suppose has never been tried. Locke"s, I fancy, has been tried often enough, but is very imperfect; it gives too much to one side, and too little to the other; it gives too little to literature.--I shall do what I can for Dr. Watts; but my materials are very scanty. His poems are by no means his best works; I cannot praise his poetry itself highly; but I can praise its design""."
