A Jar of Honey from Mount Hybla by Leigh Hunt,Richard Doyle PDF

By Leigh Hunt,Richard Doyle

TO
HORACE SMITH,
WHO, although 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 e-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 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 little while (which we point out with becoming[Pg 2] regret), we aren't certified to document its verdicts; yet one in all them made an impact on us to not be forgotten. It ran as follows:—“With this sauce a guy could devour his father.”

Now, some distance 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 severe intellects will be transported, consequently of giving approach 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 long way 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 well swallow a number of the bitterest morsels of life.” “This is the condiment to sweeten each man’s day-by-day bread.” “There is the ideal Christian aroma within the sacrificial a part of the providing of those dulcitudes.”
