As if secure of all beholders hearts, 

Neglecting she could take 'em. 

 

This young charmer, for she is not 

yet past the bloom of eighteen, has so 

beautiful a face, that though here and 

there the general ravager of beauty has 

left his dented marks in a skin, that the 

finest tints of the tulip, carnation, or 

rose, blended with the hue of the fairest 

lily, cannot equal, (so vastly superior is 

the vermilion tinge of nature, in this her 

choicest and most animated work over 

all other) yet their effect is rather pleas- 

ing than otherwise; and perhaps have 

tempered a blaze of beauty, which with- 

out them would have been insupportable. 

Her eyes are of that colour, which the 

celebrated Fielding has given the heroine 

ofhis most admirable work, and which 

dart 

 

( 39 ) 

 

dart a lustre peculiar to themselves. 

From such an eye each look has power 

to raise 

 

"The loosest wishes in the chastest heart,"' 

 

and melt the soul to all the thrillings of 

unasked desire, till quite overpowered 

with the transporting gaze, the senses 

faint, and hasten to enjoyment. Her 

hair is also black, of which great orna- 

ment, nature has been lavishly bountiful, 

for when loose, it flows in unlimited 

tresses down to her waist; nor are the 

_tendrills_ of the _moss covered grotto_ thinner 

distributed, but though not yet _bushy_, 

might truly be stiled _Black Heath_; how 

early this _thicket_ of her maidenhead _was 

penetrated_ through, by the natural invader 

of _Middlesex_, we cannot pretend to say; 

moft probably when it was only 

a small brake; for from its present 

state, and the extraordinary warmth 

of the soil, it must have began to shoot 

very early, and the mother of all things 

must have opened the sanguinary sluices 

in this delightful _Channel_, at an early 

period. The mount above, has a most 

delicious swell, as ambitious to receive 

on it downy bed, its _swelling rival_and 

_antagonist_ 

 

( 40 ) 

 

_antagonist_, and it is so well clothed, that 

it may be justly called the Cyprian 

Grove; whilst her breasts are so fine and 

so fully shaped, as to entitle her to be 

stiled _en bon point_, in the richest sense of 

the words, and they have a springinness 

that defies any weight whatever, of amo- 

rous pressure. Here the voluptuary 

might revel in pleasure, better imagined 

than described, in 

 

"Soft silent rapture and extatic bliss." 

 

Her teeth are remarkably fine; she is 

tall, and so well proportioned (when you 

examine her whole naked figure, which 

she will permit you to do, if you per- 

form Cytherean Rites like an able priest) 

that she might be taken for a fourth 

Grace, or a breathing Animated Venus 

de Medicis. Her disposition and tem- 

per is remarkably good, so sweet that it 

is your own fault if it be soured;
