Samuel Johnson does a great job in creating his refusal to prescribe a lady 's child for support to a college, he deliberately constructs his contention against conversing with the bishop and step by step assembles support for his position. His denial is most checked by, and effective because of, an unpretentious move in tone, the application of logos, and the utilization of definitions and reasons.
