Mr. Hunt is a man of the most indisputably superior worth; a Man of Genius in a very strict sense of that word, and in all senses which it bears or implies; of brilliant, varied gifts; of graceful fertility; of clearness, lovingness, truthfulness; of childlike, open character; also of most pure and even exemplary private deportment; a man who can be other than loved only by those who have not seen him, or seen him from a distance through a false medium.

THOMAS CARLYLE.

THE

WISHING-CAP PAPERS.

BY

LEIGH HUNT.

NOW FIRST COLLECTED.

Though I cannot promise as much entertainment, or as much elegance
as others have done, yet the reader may be assured he shall have as much
of both as I can.

He shall, at least, find me alive while I study his
entertainment; for I solemnly assure him I was never yet possessed of the
secret at once of writing and sleeping.
