'Dr Taylor told me, that Johnson sent his [italics] Plan [end italics; for Johnson's dictionary] to him in manuscript, for his perusal; and that when it was lying on his table, Mr William Whitehead happened to pay him a visit, and being shewn it, was highly pleased with such parts of it as he had time to read, and begged to take it home with him, which he was allowed to do; that from him it got into the hands of a noble Lord, who carried it to Lord Chesterfield'.
