good disposition, and a most agreeable 

companion, and is at present in keep- 

ing by a Mr. M--lls; but being fond of 

the _glow_ of youth, and the manly embrace 

of full vigour, she indulges variety, and 

is various in her expectation for so doing.

Miss L--nds--y, No 13, _Little Portland 

Street_. 

 

What pity 'tis so fine a face and form 

Should suffer pride, the cankerworms of joy, 

That beauty to deform. 

 

If a warm son of Bacchus, flush'd with 

the fullness of desire impetuous, Would wish 

to 

( 76 ) 

 

to melt a haughty temper down to the 

standard of all complying love, let him 

repair to this imperious golden hair'd 

beauty, for however proud, she will stoop 

to conquer any bold _invader_; and you 

may lay her on her back by closing with 

her in the athletic exercise of wrestling, 

as she is very fond of Cupid's _hug_, and the 

amorous _lock_, and will wait your _further_ 

attack with becoming spirit, and engage 

your _champion_ of her _ring_, with a grasp, 

till he is reduced to _bend_ beneath the 

powerful squeeze, and _yield_ all the _metal_ 

he has about him to his circling antago- 

nist, who, so far from behaving ungene- 

rous, will give out in exchange as much, 

or more rich treasure of another coin, in 

token of mutual amity; in short she is as 

smart a little girl as you will in general 

see of her complexion and size, and bor- 

rows her name from a gentleman who is 

a very good friend, but does not expect 

her to confine the whole of her favours to 

him alone; but allows her to pick up her 

odd guineas as she pleases. 

 

Mrs. 

 

( 77 ) 

 

Mrs L--w--s, _Upper Charlotte Street, 

Rathbone Place_. 

 

Sure nature cast one in her softest mould, 

All mild and gentle, never made to scold. 

 

West Indies gave birth to this daugh- 

ter of Momus by Venus; the warmth of 

the clime brought the charming girl's feel- 

ing to maturity at an early period, and 

a gentleman, whose name she assumes, 

first _trod_ down _Hymen's_ fence, and made 

her a perfect woman; but the natural 

warmth of her constitution soon compell- 

ed her to seek variety in our great mart; 

she therefore left her good friend, and 

now presents the world with a sweet 

chearful disposition, fine dark hair, and 

eyes of the same friendly hue; fine teeth, 

is short and plump, and we have not had 

her above eighteen months; she expects 

three guineas for a whole night, but if you 

make a short visit, one pound one shilling 

is the least. 

 

Betsy 

 

( 78 ) 

 

B--t--sy, at Mrs. Kelly's, _Duke Street, 

St. James's_. 

 

--Endless joys are in that heaven of love, 

A thousand Cupids dance upon her smiles; 

Young bathing graces wanton in her eyes,
