Second revolution
Note by A Milnes to As A Writer a chapter of The Life Of Dryden

If Dryden expected this he shared the hope with many others; a hope which had not died even in Johnson's own time, when men had not yet left off drinking to 'The King (over the water).' That Johnson wrote in times not yet perfectly tranquil may account for his visible care to touch as lightly as possible on a question still somewhat delicate. The student will find much interesting matter on these points in 'London in the Jacobite Times,' by Dr. Doran.
