Miss K--n, _Castle-Street, Oxford Market_. 

 

"Let _Nature_ empty her whole quiver in me, 

"I have a _part_, which, like an ample shield, 

Can _take in all_, and yet leave room for more. 

 

This lady assumed the name, she at 

present goes by, from motives of con- 

cealment 

 

( 59 ) 

 

cealment in her _sportive_ profession, in 

which the drives a good trade, and is 

very much lik'd by the _beaux esprits_ of 

the age for her _spunk_, being remarkably 

full of Cyprian Spirit, many degrees 

above any proof it has ever been put to; 

so that for the power of her parts, and 

active ability, she could match Turk 

Gregory; and when she had him in her 

tenacious arms, he might perform the 

amorous feat within the _magic circle_ of her 

charms, till even strength, like his, was 

_spent_, and nature quite exhausted of all 

her balmy store, whilst she, untired, and 

springing from the bed, would ask a fresh 

attack, and still give pleasure in the warm 

embrace; she is of a dark complexion, 

with a wide mouth, and extraordinary 

well formed for a winter's companion. 

She has no pretensions to beauty, but 

founds her claims to public favour on in- 

ternal merit, and her _capacity_ and skill in 

the rites of Venus, appealing rather to 

the sense of touch, than that of sight; she 

is in general to be met with at a favourite 

hop, at the west end of the town, and if 

Mr. B--rd should not be there, you may 

gain the liberty of attending her home, 

and the will thank you for half a guinea. 

 

Mrs. 

( 60 ) 

 

Mrs. H--rv--y, No. 21, _Queen Ann 

Street East_. 

 

Behold those eyes that swim in humid fires, 

And trace her wanton thoughts and young 

desires; 

Taste those sweet lips, with balmy Nectar 

fraught, 

And all the rich luxuriancy of thought: 

Press her soft bosom--seat of swelling joy, 

Whose charms invite the rosy pinion'd boy; 

Who, fluttering here, may point the unerring 

dart, 

Flash in each eye, and revel in each heart, 

Till bolder grown, your hand insatiate rove, 

O'er her delightful _mount_ and _sportive grove_; 

Then all her limbs unbound, her girdle loose, 

There's nothing you can ask her, she'll refuse. 

 

The above lines, from one of the 

warmest and most elegant poets fancy 

ever favoured, might be very justly ap- 

plied to this charming girl. Rich with 

the glow of youth, and the charms of a 

person, in which nature has been lavishly 

bountiful, she possesses a mind rarely, 

very rarely met with in the frail 

daughters of pleasure; generous, free- 

hearted, 

 

( 61 ) 

 

hearted, noble, feeling, and disinterested, 

might appear to be too high sounding 

epithets for a woman of this dercription. 

But however strange, it is not less strange
