Miss 

 

( 31 ) 

 

Mis N--ble, No. 10, _Plough Court, 

Fetter Lane_. 

 

She darted a sweet kiss, 

The wanton prelude to a farther bliss; 

Such as might kindle frozen appetite, 

And fire e'en wasted nature with delight. 

 

She is really a fine girl, with a lovely 

fair complexion, a most engaging be- 

haviour and affable disposition. She 

has a most consummate skill in reviving 

the dead; for as she loves nothing but 

active life, she is happy when she can 

restore it: and her tongue has a double 

charm, both when speaking and when 

silent; for the tip of it, _properly applied_, 

can talk eloquently to the heart, whilst 

no sound pervades the ear and send such 

feelings to the central spot, that imme- 

diately demands the more noble weapon 

to _close_ the _melting scene_.

Miss Sophia M--rt--n, No. 11, _Ste- 

_phen Street, Rathbone Place_. 

 

Oh! the transporting joy! 

 

Impetuous flood of long-expected rap- 

ture, she is a charming black beauty; 

her vivid eyes, speak the liveliness of her 

disposition, 

 

( 32 ) 

 

disposition, and the joy she conceives in 

the hour of bliss. As yet she hath not ap- 

proached the verge of satiety; she is not 

so hackneyed in the ways of man as to be 

merely passive, she enjoys the pleasure, 

and though she is very fond of a _noun 

substantive_ that can _stand_ by itself, yet she 

loves to make it _fall_, and indeed the 

stoutest man cannot _stand_ long before 

her; many a _fine weapon_ she has made 

a _mere hanger_ and the most stubborn steel 

hath melted in her _sheath_; yet no one 

complains, but rather rejoices at the de- 

bility she produces, and wishes for repe- 

tition which she enjoys with a _gou_ peculiar 

to herself, and is possessed of every _amo- 

rous_ means to produce it, as she is of 

every luscious one to destroy it.--To be 

met with at any of the genteel houses 

about St. James's.

-------Fair 

As May morning rising from the east, 

Or day dismounting from the golden west. 

 

This young charmer is of the middle 

size, and the resplendent black of her 

lively 

 

( 33 ) 

 

lively eyes is finely contrasted by the 

fairness of her complexion and lightness 

of her hair: her teeth are good, and her 

temper complying. She is really a delici- 

ous piece, and her _terra incognita_ is so 

very agreeable to every traveller therein, 

that it hath ceas'd to deserve that name, 

and is become a well known and much 

frequented country; freely _taking in_ the 

stranger, _raising_ up them that _fall_, 

making the _crooked straight_, and although
