By Leigh Hunt,Richard Doyle

TO
HORACE SMITH,
WHO, notwithstanding HE SUPPRESSES THE PASTORALS WHICH HE WROTE
IN HIS YOUTH,
WILL hold 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 booklet, the Almanach des Gourmands, which sounds the intensity of the advantage 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 each one his mouthful, and profoundly ruminating on its pretensions. Having visible 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 among them made an impact on us to not be forgotten. It ran as follows:—“With this sauce a guy could devour his father.”

Now, a long way are we, within the so much formidable moments of our honey-making, from aspiring at a judgment upon us like that;—sad facts of the excesses of mind's eye into which the main critical intellects should be transported, consequently of giving option to their appetites. one of many especial components of our vocation is to attract candy out of sour; and the one organization of rules 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 possibly swallow the various bitterest morsels of life.” “This is the condiment to sweeten each man’s day-by-day bread.” “There is the appropriate Christian aroma within the sacrificial a part of the delivering of those dulcitudes.”
