It's curious that Johnson makes no mention of "ch", "sh", "th" either under H or under the other letter. Well, even Homer nods.

Two points are obsolete: that English words never end with "c" (the "ck" in learned words like "musick", "rhetorick" was stripped after Johnson's time), and that "r" is never mute (from which we see that Johnson's pronunciation was rhotick).
