Mr Grove : [articled in 'The Spectator']

[from Bennet Langton's collection of Johnsoniana passed to Boswell in 1780] 'He mentioned with an air of satisfaction what Baretti had told him; that, meeting, in the course of his studying English, with an excellent paper in the "Spectator", one of four that were written by the respectable Dissenting Minister, Mr. Grove of Taunton, and observing the genius and energy of mind that it exhibits, it greatly quickened his curiosity to visit our country; as he thought if such were the lighter periodical essays of our authours, their productions on more weighty occasions must be wonderful indeed!'

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: Giuseppe Marc'Antonio Baretti      Print: Serial / periodical
