Excerpt from Macaulay's Life of Samuel Johnson: With a Selection From His Essay on Johnson
It may be well here to suggest to teachers not familiar With the uniform requirements, that the preparatory course can not be satisfactorily completed in less than three years of study, at the rate of three recitations a week. Of that time, a full third of a school year should be devoted to the Life of Johnson and the literature to which it is designed to serve as an introduction.
