TO
HORACE SMITH,
WHO, even though HE SUPPRESSES THE PASTORALS WHICH HE WROTE
IN HIS YOUTH,
WILL continue so long as HE LIVES,
A center OPEN to each common 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 book, the Almanach des Gourmands, which sounds the intensity of the advantage of soups, and comes to a decision at the distracting claims of the main affinitive relishes, there's a frontispiece featuring 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 obvious yet this unmarried quantity of the paintings, and that just for a little while (which we point out with becoming[Pg 2] regret), we're not certified to record its verdicts; yet one in all them made an effect on us to not be forgotten. It ran as follows:—“With this sauce a guy may well devour his father.”

Now, some distance are we, within the so much 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 should be transported, as a result of giving technique to their appetites. one of many especial elements of our vocation is to attract candy out of sour; and the one organization of principles which those unfilial sages dropped at our brain, used to be 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 used to be thence subtle over the rustic, exclaimed from all quarters, after the main benignant meditation, “With this sauce a guy may possibly swallow the various bitterest morsels of life.” “This is the condiment to sweeten each man’s day-by-day bread.” “There is the best Christian aroma within the sacrificial a part of the providing of those dulcitudes.”
