We talked of the education of
children; and I asked him what he
thought was best to teach them
first. Johnson: "Sir, it is no matter
what you teach them first, any
more than what leg you shall put
into your breecnes first. Sir, you
may stand disputing which is best
to put in first, but in the mean-
time your breech is bare. Sir,
while you are considering which
of two things you should teach
your child first, another boy has
learnt them both."

caused unjustifiable delays in
