Samuel Johnson : Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland

'On Monday, September 15, Dr. Johnson observed, that every body commended such parts of his "Journey to the Western Islands", as were in their own way. "For instance, (said he,) Mr. Jackson (the all-knowing) told me there was more good sense upon trade in it, than he should hear in the House of Commons in a year, except from Burke. Jones commended the part which treats of language; Burke that which describes the inhabitants of mountainous countries'.
