mould to cast grenadiers in; she is about 

twenty, and though rather above the 

common heighth, is not ungraceful nor 

awkward. She knows her value, and 

will seldom accept of less than two 

guineas, which indeed, are well be- 

stowed. It is remarkable, that her lovers 

are most commonly of a diminutive size. 

The vanity of surmounting such a fine 

tall woman, is, doubtless, an incentive to 

many, to so unmatch themselves, that 

they are content to be like a sweet-bread 

on a breast of veal. Yet, notwithstand- 

ing her size, we hear her _low countries_ 

are far from being capacious, but like a 

well made boot, is drawn on the _leg_ with 

some difficulty, and _fits so close_, as to give 

great pleasure to the wearer; it is about 

two years since her _boot_ has been ac- 

customed to wear legs in it, and though 

often _soaled_, (sold) yet never wears out.

Why should they e'er give me pain, 

Who to give me joy disdain; 

All I ask of mortal man, 

Is to---------me whilst he can. 

 

These four lines were not more appli-

sent reigning lover of the sport; she is 

rather above mediocrity in height and 

size, with fine dark hair, and a pair of 

bewitching hazel eyes; very agreeable 

and loving, but she is not so unreasonable 

as to expect constancy; it is a weak un- 

profitable quality in a woman, and if she 

can persuade her husband or keeper that 

she has it, it is just the same as though 

she really possessed it. Miss B--lt--n 

is conscious she loves variety, as it con- 

duces both to her pleasure and interest; 

and she gives each of her gallants the 

same liberty of conscience, therefore she 

never lessens the fill of joy, by any real 

or affected freaks of jealousy; when her 

lovers come to her, they are welcome, 

and they are equally so when they fly to 

another's arms. Indeed, when they do 

so, it is generally to her advantage, as 

she finds they return to her with re- 

doubled ardour, and her charms are in 

general more dear, from a comparison 

with others; and although her age is 

bordering upon twenty-four, and she has 

been a traveller in our path four years, 

her desires are not the least abated, nor 

does she set less value on herself.

She lay and lean'd her cheek upon her hand, 

And cast a look fo languishingly sweet,
