His incredible speed of deliveries gave very little time to the batsman facing him, and according to Frank Tyson, the batsman has to begin playing a stroke against Jeff Thomson more than .o62 of a second before Thomson releases the ball. It is really amazing. The batsman who successfully played his deliveries must be commended because they must have had exceptional eyesight and concentration. It was also reported that when he was at his fastest often his deliveries, after beating the wicket keeper behind the stumps, after one bounce, landed on the sight screen. It must have been a treat to watch such a fast and fearsome bowler.< Less

More > they dealt briefly with men in whom the public at large has long ceased to be interested. Richard Savage would be of this number if Johnson's account of his life had not secured for him lasting remembrance. Johnson's Life of Savage in this volume has not less interest than the Lives of Addison and Swift, between which it is set, although Savage himself has no right at all to be remembered in such company. Johnson published this piece of biography when his age was thirty-five; his other lives of poets appeared when that age was about doubled. He was very poor when the Life of Savage was written for Cave. Soon after its publication, we are told, Mr. Harte dined with Cave, and incidentally praised it. Meeting him again soon afterwards Cave said to Mr. Harte, "You made a man very happy t'other day."< Less
