be agreeable; however, she may please 

some, and as we have only known her 

about four months she cannot have lost 

her _appetite_, but seems particularly fond 

of the sport.

Miss L--ns--y, No. 13, _Bentick Street, 

Berwick Street_. 

 

Close in the arms she languishingly lies, 

With dying looks, short breath, and swimming 

eyes. 

 

To all lovers of carrots we would re- 

commend this fair complex, and blue ey'd 

nymph; she is now steering into the 

nineteenth year, and has very little of the 

vulgarity too often found in the sister- 

hood, but would be rather silent than 

speak nonsense: the mere sensualist will 

not find her quite to his fancy, but she 

will please the delicate and sensible, who 

can 

 

( 21 ) 

 

can spend the dull pause of joy with her 

agreeably, till call'd by nature to repeti- 

tion; in which, as well as in conservation, 

we are informed she is equally charming.

Miss H--rd--y, No. 45, _Newman Street_. 

 

Her look serene does purest softness wear, 

Her face exclaims her fairest of the fair. 

 

This lady borrows her name from her 

late keeper, who is now gone to the In- 

dia's, and left her to seek support on the 

wide common of independence; she is 

now just arrived at the zenith of perfec- 

tion, devoid of art and manners, as yet 

untutor'd by fashion, her charms have for 

their zest every addition youth and sim- 

plicity can add. She has beauty with- 

out pride, elegance without affectation, 

and innocence without dissimulation; 

and not knowing how long this train of 

perfections will last, we would advise 

our reader to make hay whilst the sun 

shines. 

 

 

Miss 

 

 

[ 22 ] 

 

Miss Br--wn, No. 8, _Castle-Street, 

Newman-Street_. 

 

Her every glance, like Jove's vindictive flame, 

Shoot thro' the veins, and kindle all the frame. 

 

A peculiar elegance in make and taste 

in dressing distinguishes this daughter of 

love; her shape is remarkably genteel, 

and her figure good; she sings a good 

song and is a chearful _bon_ companion; 

her complexion is fair, her eyes, though 

grey, exceedingly melting, and seem to 

speak the disposition of the parts below 

very forcibly, and if you would wish to 

find a good bed-fellow, tho' not blest 

with every other perfection, this lady 

will perhaps suit her price, which is two 

pounds two.

Mrs. T--rb--t, No 25, _Titchfield-Street_. 

 

The glow of youth, the fire of wanton love, 

Sport in her eye, and rouse the sensual heart 

To strong desires unmanageable pitch. 

 

So universally known, and so great a 

fav'rite with the bucks is this lady, that 

her desription is almost needless; her 

eyes And hair are of the most inviting
