Melt in her looks, and pant upon her breasts; 

Each word is gentle as a western breeze 

That fans the infant bosom of the spring, 

And every sigh more fragrant than the morn. 

 

This beautiful girl, that goes by no 

other name than Betsy, was formely a 

retailer of apples, &c. She has lately, 

with three other ladies, sported her figure 

at Bath, and was there the reigning toast 

amongst the first bucks of the place; she 

is delicately and genteely form'd, about 

the middle size, very young and spright- 

ly, and modest in her conversation, ex- 

cept when proper occasions demand wan- 

ton freedom; her hair and eyes are black, 

and her teeth remarkably white, through 

which she plays the velvet tip with un- 

common grace and ardour; we cannot 

pretend to say who cropt the virgin bud 

from the beautiful tree, but it could be 

long before she put herself under the care 

and direction of Mrs. K----, and under 

such a tutoress we have no doubt but she 

will 

 

( 79 ) 

 

will be soon such a complete mistress of 

her business, that join'd with her personal 

accomplishments, will bring her into the 

molt elevated life. Many of the post 

steeds of Venus have been so often hack'd, 

that they are broken winded, halt in 

their paces, and are well nigh founder'd, 

so as to be scarce fit for any thing but 

_brood mares_, if they are not too old. 

There will therefore be full room for 

Betsy to succeed some of the most eminent, 

as she is well worthy of the embraces of 

the first men in the kingdom. Some 

who have possess'd her speak with rap- 

tures of the joy she bestows, they say the 

beauties she displays when drest, great 

as they are, are trivial to those which cus- 

tom keeps concealed; they say the mossy 

grot of Venus is perfectly enchanting; 

her thighs are two alabaster pillars, 

which with the ebon tendril that play in 

wanton ringlets round the grot, and 

the crimson lining of the elastic portals, 

form together that perfect _clare obscure_, so 

much admir'd in painting, and which al- 

ways produce a most pleasing effect; that 

her lovely snowy breasts are quickly be- 

spread with purple meandring veins, and 

that her murmurs, her broken sighs of 

joy, 

 

( 80 ) 

 

joy, and half spoken words of delight in 

the rapturous minute, justify fully, the 

exclamation of the poet. 

 

Oh! how sweet to see her eyes 

Rolling in their humid fires, 

Where the nymph extended lies 

Full of love and soft desires; 

Conscious red her cheeks o'er spreading, 

And her heaving bosom rising, 

Milky paths to raptures leading, 

Murmuring sighs her joys disguising.
