I protest against Dr. Jonson [Johnson] Monument being erected in St Pauls Because the Doctors body lies in Westminster Abbey - because I verily believe it was when he was living his wish that his monument might be erected there - because his Friends executors have engaged with the Dean & Chapter to erect it there which engagement has been confirmed by the subscribers because the subscribers gave their money under an engagement that it should be erected there - because this Committee have not been invested by the general meeting with power to alter their resolution of Erecting it there or with any power whatever except that in processing money.  Arguments used on March 26.
