Eggs have been as violently eulogized as they have been condemned, andboth in extremes. In some parts of Africa, where they are very scarce,and the Priests are very fond of them, it has been revealed to thepeople, that it is sacrilege for any but clerical gentlemen to eateggs! The lay scruple, if I may so speak, is quieted by the assurance,that, though the sacred hens produce only for the servants at thealtar, the latter never address themselves to the food in question,without the whole body of the laity profiting thereby! I suppose thatDissenters naturally abound in this part of Africa. There is nothing sounsatisfactory as vicarious feeding. Feeding is a duty which every manis disposed to perform for himself, whether it be expected of him ornot. All the eggs in Africa, passing the œsophagus of a Priest, couldhardly nourish a layman, even though the eggs were as gigantic as thosewhich an old author says are presented by ladies in the moon to theirprofoundly delighted husbands, and from which spring young babies, sixfeet high, and men at all points.
The origin of tea is very satisfactorily accounted for by the Indianmythologists. Darma, a Hindoo Prince, went on a pilgrimage to China,vowing he would never take rest by the way; but he once fell asleep,and he was so angry with himself, on awaking, that he cut off hiseye-lids, and flung them on the ground. They sprang up in the form oftea shrubs; and he who drinks of the infusion thereof, imbibes thejuice of the eye-lids of Darma. Tea, however, is said to have beenfirst used in China as a corrective for bad water; and that notat a remote date.
The Dutch appear to have been the first who discovered the value ofthe shrub, in a double sense. They not only procured it for the sakeof its virtues, but contrived to do so by a very profitable species ofbarter. They exchanged with the Chinese a pound of sago for three orfour pounds of tea; and it is very possible that each party, preferringits own acquisition, looked on the opposite party as duped.
But there was a late Prince of Bourbon, who dined after a more singularfashion than that of the Dauphins,[Pg 134] his ancestors. I allude to thePrince mentioned by Maurepas, and whose imagination was so sick, thathe fancied himself a hare, and would not allow a bell to be rung,lest it should terrify him into the woods, where he might be shot byhis own game-keepers, and afterwards served up at his own table. Atanother time, he had a fancy that he would look well dished up; and,dreaming himself a cauliflower, he stuck his feet in the mould of hiskitchen-garden, and called upon his people to come and water him! Atlength, he pronounced himself dead, and refused to dine at all, as aninsult to his spiritual entity. He would have died, had he not beenvisited by two friends, who introduced themselves as his late father,and the deceased Maréchal de Luxembourg; and who solemnly invited himto descend with them to the shades, and dine with the ghost of MaréchalTurenne. The melancholy Prince accepted with alacrity, and went downwith them to a cellar already prepared for the banquet of the departed;and he not only made a hearty meal, but, as long as his fancy made ofhimself a ghost, he insisted every day on dining with congenial shadowsin the coal-cellar! In spite of this monomaniacal fantasy, he wasexcessively shrewd in all matters of business, especially where his owninterests were concerned.
And now, Sir, I shall be happy to take a glass of wine with you,obsolete as that once honoured custom has become. And allow me to sendyou a slice of this venison. A little more of the fat? Certainly; but,if you will take currant jelly with it, the sin be upon yourown head. It has always been the approved plan, you say. Ah, my dearSir! think what the approved plan was, for years, in the treatment ofsmall-pox. That was not a gastronomic matter, you say? I am not sosure of that; for the patient, swathed in scarlet cloth, had to drinkmulled port wine. But, on a question of diet, time[Pg 164] and numbers, youthink, may be taken for authority. Alas, my dear Sir! did you evertry the once popular receipt of Apicius for a thick sauce to roastedchicken? Never! of course you have not; for, in such case, your youngwidow would already have touched that pretty life-assurance we wotof. English tastes, you urge? Ah! in that case, if old rule be goodrule, you must camp in Kensington Gardens, and eat acorns. In Germany,where venison is a national dish, the idea of currant jelly would ruinthe digestion of a whole company. But I see you are incorrigible, andWilliam is at your elbow with the doubtful sauce.
A still more favourite dish, at Athens, was turnips, from Thebes.Carrots, too, formed a distinguished dish at Greek and Roman tables.Purslain was rather honoured as a cure against poisons, whether inthe blood by wounds, or in the stomach from beverage. I have heard itasserted in France, that if you briskly rub a glass with fingers whichhave been previously rubbed with purslain, or parsley, the glass willcertainly break. I have tried the experiment, but only to find that theglass resisted the pretended charm.
There were seasons, however, when he could be more than imperiallyextravagant. Witness the little supper he gave to chosen guests, all ofwhom attended in the attire of gods and goddesses; and at which feasthe presided in the character of Apollo. The wits of the day, who were[Pg 396]not invited, denounced this supper as an orgy at which decent peoplewould not have been present, even if asked. Such stupendous iniquitywas said there to have been enacted, that the real gods who had atfirst looked laughingly down from Olympus, withdrew one by one behindtheir respective clouds. Even Jove himself, who sat gazing longest, atlength hurried away from the sight of men, who were greater beasts thanthe privileged gods! 041b061a72
