TO
HORACE SMITH,
WHO, notwithstanding HE SUPPRESSES THE PASTORALS WHICH HE WROTE
IN HIS YOUTH,
WILL maintain so long as HE LIVES,
A center OPEN to each ordinary AND NOBLE IMPRESSION,
THESE PAGES,
WITHOUT HIS wisdom, yet CONFIDING IN HIS INDULGENCE,
ARE INSCRIBED,
BY HIS EVER thankful AND AFFECTIONATE FRIEND,
LEIGH HUNT.

in a single of the volumes of that celebrated French ebook, the Almanach des Gourmands, which sounds the intensity of the benefit of soups, and comes to a decision at the distracting claims of the main affinitive relishes, there's a frontispiece proposing to the respectful eyes of the reader a “Jury of Tasters.” They shape a board of aged gents with the main considerate faces, and are within the act of chewing every one his mouthful, and profoundly ruminating on its pretensions. Having visible yet this unmarried quantity of the paintings, and that just for a short while (which we point out with becoming[Pg 2] regret), we aren't certified to file its verdicts; yet certainly one of them made an influence on us to not be forgotten. It ran as follows:—“With this sauce a guy may consume his father.”

Now, a ways are we, within the such a lot bold moments of our honey-making, from aspiring at a judgment upon us like that;—sad proof of the excesses of mind's eye into which the main severe intellects could be transported, consequently of giving technique to their appetites. one of many especial elements of our vocation is to attract candy out of sour; and the single organization of principles which those unfilial sages dropped at our brain, was once that of an both looking, yet a ways nobler set of judges, who, whilst this our Honey first made its visual appeal on the periodical desk of Mr. Ainsworth, and was once thence subtle over the rustic, exclaimed from all quarters, after the main benignant meditation, “With this sauce a guy may perhaps swallow a few of the bitterest morsels of life.” “This is the condiment to sweeten each man’s day-by-day bread.” “There is the precise Christian aroma within the sacrificial a part of the supplying of those dulcitudes.”
