I'll expose every part 

Of my brown _apple cart_, 

And stifle, quite stifle the _boy_ in its _charms_. 

 

I hope none of our readers will proves a 

Mr. L-d-tt, who, about six months ago, 

from 

 

( 47 ) 

 

from a mere silly quarrel with this his fa- 

vourite fair, thought it convenient to fin- 

ish his existence in the _leaden way_; she 

does not possess either youth or novelty 

sufficient to tempt many, to act in that 

way, having been at least seven years a 

trading nymph to our knowledge; she is 

tall, and genteelly made, with a fine skin, 

and beautiful flaxen hair, but is too fond 

of the brandy bottle to give that sincere 

delight, that _mutual interchange of souls_ 

so necessary to stamp the _extatic rapture_; 

she may, however, prove to those that 

will drink a glass with her, and has no 

objection to become as merry as herself, 

a desireable piece, as she is neither extra- 

vagant in her demands, or nice in the 

choicee of her admirers.

Mrs. D--f--ld, _at a Sadler's, Charles 

Street, Soho_. 

 

Then he began to rave and tear, 

And swore once more he'd try the fair 

To grace his notes he would take care, 

She gave her kind consent. 

He pitch'd the highest note he could, 

And kept the stops just where he should, 

Damon, says she, your musick's good, 

And I am now content. 

 

This lady, we are told, is remarkably 

fond of musick, and there is no _tune_ 

within 

 

( 48 ) 

 

within _compass of the flute_ but she plays 

with the greatest dexterity; she is perfect 

mistress of all the _graces_, is never _out_ in 

_stopping_, and is full as well skilled in 

_pricking_; altho' the principal part of her 

_music_ is played in _duets_, and every _duet_ 

in a _natural key_, she has not the smallest 

objection to _two flats_; she has a variety 

of sweet notes, and many pleasing _airs_, 

and generally chooses the lowest part; 

every _shake and quaver_ she feels in- 

stinctively, and sometimes has played the 

same _tune_ over _twice_, before her partner 

has gone through it once, without the 

least deviation from true concord; she 

does not allow of any _cross barrs_, and is 

particularly partial to the _Tacit_ flute; 

her moving stars are as black and as 

round as the end of a _Crotchet_; no _flower 

that blows is like_ her cheek, or _scatters such 

perfume_ as her breath: no _advice can 

controul her love; she does as she will with 

her swain_, presses him _away to the copse_, 

puts the _wanton God where the bee sucks into 

her pleasant native plains_, soon after you 

feel the _graceful move_ and find _how sweet 

it is in the low-lands_; and should it be _in 

sable night, she loves to restore the drooping 

plant_, thinks _variety is charming_, and
