TO
HORACE SMITH,
WHO, even though HE SUPPRESSES THE PASTORALS WHICH HE WROTE
IN HIS YOUTH,
WILL preserve so long as HE LIVES,
A middle OPEN to each usual 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 e-book, the Almanach des Gourmands, which sounds the intensity of the benefit of soups, and makes 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 noticeable yet this unmarried quantity of the paintings, and that just for a short while (which we point out with becoming[Pg 2] regret), we're not certified to record its verdicts; yet certainly one of them made an effect on us to not be forgotten. It ran as follows:—“With this sauce a guy may well consume his father.”

Now, some distance are we, within the such a lot formidable 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 critical intellects should be transported, as a result of giving solution to their appetites. one of many especial elements of our vocation is to attract candy out of sour; and the single organization of rules which those unfilial sages delivered to our brain, used to be that of an both looking out, yet a ways nobler set of judges, who, while this our Honey first made its visual appeal on the periodical desk of Mr. Ainsworth, and used to be thence subtle over the rustic, exclaimed from all quarters, after the main benignant meditation, “With this sauce a guy may 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 providing of those dulcitudes.”
