INTRODUCTION. 

 

 

Again the coral berry'd holly glads the eye, 

The ivy green again each window decks, 

And mistletoe, kind friend to _Bassia_'s cause, 

Under each merry roof invites the kiss; 

Come then, my friends, ye friends to _Harris_ come, 

And more than kisses share, drink love supreme 

From his ambrosial cup, tho' oft replete 

Satiety ne'er gives, but leaves the ravish'd sense 

Supremely blest, and ever craving more. 

Come ye gay sons of pleasure, come and feast 

Your _every_ sense, and lave your souls in love, 

Fearless advance, nor think of ills to come; 

Here taste variety, of love's sweet gifts, 

Pure and unstain'd as at kind nature's birth. 

 

 

THE parterre of Venus was never 

more elegantly filled, never did 

the loves and graces shine, with more 

splendor than at present; Marylebone, 

the now grand paradise of love, and 

Covent Garden, her elder born, beam 

with uncommon ardor; nor is our 

antient Drury unfrequented; no sooner 

do the stars above shed their benign in- 

fluence, but our more attracting ones 

below 

 

[ 14 ] 

 

below bespangle every walk, and make 

a heaven on earth; Bagnigge, St. George's 

Spa, with all their sister shops, deal 

out each night their choiceft gifts of love; 

nor with the sons of pleasure be dis- 

appointed should they extend their travels 

still farther east, and visit the purlieus 

of White Chapel. The Royalty is 

over full, and Wapping, Shadwell, and 

the neighbouring _fields_ lend all their 

lovely train to glad each night; these 

then shall be our walks; from these gay 

spots of pleasure shall we call love's 

purest sweets, 

 

And without thorn the rose. 

 

By thus extending our researches we 

shall be able to suit every constitution, 

and every pocket, every whim and 

fancy that the most extravagant sensua- 

list can desire. Here may they learn to 

shun the dreadful quicksands of pain and 

mortification, and land safe on the terra 

firma of delight and love.
