by Let me add, as a proof of the popularity of his character, that there are copper pieces struck at Birmingham, with his head impressed on them, which pass current as halfpence there, and in the neighbouring parts of the country.

[The most extensive collections of engraved portraits of Dr. Johnson are those in the possession of Lewis Pocock, Esq., Mr. Upcott, and Mr. Murray of Albemarle Street. The latter was made by the late John Thomas Smith, of the British Museum. - J. MURRAY, Jun. 1835.]
