Colonel Myddleton of Gwaynynog, near Denbigh, repaid the honour of his acquaintance, during his sojourn in the principality, by erecting an urn on the banks of a rivulet in the park, where he delighted to stand and recite verses, with the following inscription, which claims a place among the memorials of his fame.

“ This spot was often dignified by the presence of

SAMUEL JOHNSON, LL. D. whose moral writings, exactly conformable to the precepts of

Christianity,
gave ardour to Virtue, and confidence to Truth."

Near his bust, erected by his friends, in the cathedral church of Lichfield, (p. 457.) is a (similar bust of Garrick, erected by his relict, after a design of the same artists, Wyatt, architect, and Westmacott, sculptor, with the following inscription, combining the desiderium chari conjugis with his emphatic eulogy on the dramatic talents of bis deceased friend, (p. 386.)

Eva Maria, relict of David GARRICK, Esq. caused this monument to be erected to the memory

of her beloved husband;
who died the 20th of January 1779, aged 63 years.
He had not only the amiable qualities of private lise,

but such astonishing dramatic talents,
as too well verified the observation of his friend,

“ His death eclipsed the gaiety of nations,
and impoverished the public stock of harmless pleasure."
