12 July: Doctor Johnson on friendship

Doctor Johnson said to Sir Joshua Reynolds, ‘If a man does not make new acquaintance as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, Sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.’

from “Life of Johnson, James Boswell.

It must be my guilty conscience that makes me choose letter boxes to illustrate this post. Not all my friends are on-line, so where is my pen?

19th Century boxes in Kent and Lancashire.
