Boswell moved to London in 1760 and met Samuel Johnson in 1763. Boswell travelled through Europe from 1763 until 1766, during which time he met General Paoli in Corsica. He published An Account of Corsica in 1768 and Essays in Favour of the Brave Corsicans in 1769. Returning to Edinburgh in 1766, Boswell practiced law until 1783. He continued to visit Johnson in London during this time, and in 1773 made a tour of Scotland and the Hebrides with Johnson. He published A Tour of the Hebrides in 1785. He had accumulated much information on Johnson during their friendship and, after Johnson's death in 1784, began his Life of Samuel Johnson, which was finally published in 1791.
