Did it with willing haste to her depart? 

It did, I'm sure, and fluttered around her 

heart; 

It heav'd, it trembled, and it panted there, 

But all its weak efforts to stay were vain, 

A kiss restored the fugitive again; 

My soul re-enterd, we repeated o'er 

A thousand joys unknown to both before. 

 

In the bloom of sixteen, tall and ele- 

gantly genteel, with fine black expressive 

eyes, and remarkable fine hair, which 

flows 

 

( 81 ) 

 

flows in graceful ringlets down her back, 

and with an envious shade sweetly pro- 

tects two of the most enchanting snowy 

hillocks nature ever formed. Miss 

P---- may well please, may well 

attract the eye. She does please, she 

does attract, and upon every account 

well merits the attention of the man of 

true taste. Untutored by art, and taught 

only by powerful nature, she charms in 

enjoyment; and as she has not, from 

over frequency, been rendered callous 

to the joys of love, she repays every 

rapture with interest, and meets the 

blissful moment with a tepid flood of 

delight. At present she is in good 

keeping by a citizen, not many miles 

from Fleet Market, and having been 

only three months under his care, has 

not yet been sufficiently broke for the 

sport, hope therefore that some of our 

good friends will, by properly supplying 

the citizen's place at those hours his 

employment obliges him to be absent, 

_instill_ into _her_ such _principles_ that will 

at least raise her spunk to _proof_; but' 

altho' young, she can well dispense with 

a little more pocket money than her 

keeper allows, and always expects twice 

the number of pieces that her paramour 

gives proofs of his manhood.

Miss Harriet Ll--d, _at a Toy Shop, 

German-Street_ 

 

---------Born with every grace, 

Ev'n envy must applaud so fair a face; 

Such is her form as painters when they show 

Their utmost art, on naked limbs bestow. 

 

This pretty little smart girl, this true 

lover of the sport, is at present in keeping 

by a member of P--------t, not far 

from St. James's; but not being suffi- 

ciently _membered_ for her _lower house_, she 

appropriates the greatest part of the 

member's hard coin to support and keep 

in good humour two favourites of her 

own. The one a tender sprig of the 

law, the other a jolly hearty looking 

butcher; but still in spite of these three, 

she has her _best apartment_ ready for any 

one that is master of five guineas, and 

will make her mistress of the same; 

it is neatly ornamented with chestnut 

coloured fringe, is snug and warm, and 

when not _too warm_ (which we are told is 

sometimes the case) very comfortable; 

she is now only seventeen, her dark eyes 

have much lustre and more meaning: 

her 

 

( 83 ) 

 

her limbs, tho' small, are well shaped,
