old friend, whose name she stole, has 

been long dead, and by his death has 

reduced her to accept of almost any sum 

her paramour offers.

Miss J--hn--t--n, No. 6, _Church 

Court, St. Martin's Lane_. 

 

Here roses red, and lilys fair; 

The gifts of nature, deck her air. 

 

Oh for a touch of the pencil of anima- 

tion to color the picture of one of the most 

lively productions in our exhibition; she 

is genteel and well made, with a beautiful 

face, the tints in which are done by 

nature alone, fine light hair, and a pretty 

learing eye, that would make a monk 

disregard his vow of celibacy, or a 

mahometan think that he had got one of 

the daughters of paradise; her mouth 

small, her lips tempting; her teeth even, 

white, and regular; her foot and leg 

smart, and her dress at once neat and 

genteel. But these are not the sole 

powers of this lady; she is acquainted at 

once 

 

( 69 ) 

 

once with the whole rationale of love, as 

well as with the entire practice of it; and 

whether we talk of those mysteries which 

are only known by the adepts, or those 

more clumsily applied operations of the 

lower orders of the sisterhood, she is up 

to every thing in love's tactics. Her 

dialect does not tell us she is a native of 

Scotland, tho' her father, who is an 

half pay officer, yet resides there; at 

this period when the powers of love or 

lust are at their full bloom, necessity and 

inclination together, prompted her to 

become a dancer on our cyprian stage, 

and is very desirous of pleasing every 

man that makes her his partner, and is 

so very careful of her health, that before 

she receives her _guinea_, she must examine 

every _one_ of her partner's _legs_.

Mrs. S--tt--n, No. 31, _Tavistock-Street_. 

 

When will the dear man come, that I may 

hold him 

Fast as my love can make him, hug him close 

As my fond soul can wish; give all my breath 

In sighs and kisses, tell I swoon with rapture. 

 

All this she seems to say to each 

admirer; it cannot be true to all. But 

no 

 

( 70 ) 

 

no matter. Vanity whispers to each, 

_this is for thee alone_, and the self-deceived 

dolt believes it. Miss S--tt--n, indeed, 

can give pleasure; her agreeable per- 

son, animated eyes, and lively manner, 

promise pleasing enjoyment, and in that 

she does not deceive; she artfully prolongs 

the pleasure to its utmost limits, and even 

then repines it is so short. She is of a 

comfortable size, genteelly form'd, with a 

pretty round face, a little pimpled, very 

pretty orient teeth, and now just entered 

her twenty-second year; her lodgings are 

neat and elegant, for the use of which,
