Excerpt from The Book of Scottish Ballads: A Comprehensive Collection of the Most Approved Ballads of Scotland, Ancient and Modern; With Notices Historical, Critical, and Antiquarian

Dr. Johnson was a personal friend of Dr. Percy, and recommended the publication of the 'reliques;' but, it is well known, he had a great contempt for ballad verses, protesting they might be manufactured by the yard, without premeditation, - thus: I put my hat upon my head, The tender infant, meek and mild, And walked into the Strand, Fell down upon a stone; And there I met another man The nurse took up the squalling child, With his hat into his hand. But still the child squali'd on.'
