You must give me joy! for all Virgil is printed off except the dedication, and I yesterday afternoon returned to Quiet in the Country. I long'd to have a Line from you in London, but I believe must reserve the thousand things I have to say till I see you here, which I hope will be soon — I have seen Johnson so very often that we have contracted close friendship and are quite intimate — Dodsley behaved throughout with the utmost Civility and kindness. The last night he made a grand supper and invited all my acquaintance, Vansittart among the rest who was glad to see Johnson. Service to Bedingfield.
