I by myself went to the Hooles on Sunday last. There was a set party there. Dr. Warton of Winchester School, a very pleasing man. His brother, Mr. Tom Warton, the greatest clod I ever saw, and so vulgar a figure with his clunch wig that I took him for a shoemaker at first. His real name is Colin McClod.
