covered with a skin fair as the swan's 

neck, and soft as its down, they are 

perfectly pliable, and form a thousand 

true lovers knots, first to facilitate the 

entrance into her _apartment_, and then 

to keep the enraptured lodger there as 

long as possible. Indeed, she never lets 

one depart till he has paid his _rent_; but 

to shew she is not avaricious, she 

generally returns as much as she receives, 

in the like _metal_, tho' not in the same 

coin.

Miss Sarah S--dd--ns, _at a Hair- 

dresser's, Tavistock-row, Covent-garden_. 

 

He dresses her wig in a new fashion way, 

And black D--m--r as usual is jovial and gay; 

She constantly smiles on her doating dear puff, 

And thinks he can never be tumbled enough. 

 

This good-natured piece of luxury 

we have nor been able to trace beyond 

five years, at which time she made her 

entry in no very high sphere, but meet- 

ing with great encouragement, she might 

have done very well, but love, that 

wicked deity, created for the ruin of his 

female 

 

( 84 ) 

 

female votaries, shot poor Sally deep in 

the heart; going to partake of an 

innocent amusement, vulgarly called 

_black hops_, where twelve pence will gain 

admission, she beheld, oh dire misfortune! 

a lovely African, blooming with all the 

hue of the warm country that gave him 

birth, and fell at that instant a sacrifice 

to the charms of the well made sooty 

frizeur; for some time she ranked him 

amongst her own train, and charitably 

exerted herself for his support, but 

growing at length satiated with his dear 

company, and almost ruined in the bar- 

gain, she dismissed the gloomy object of 

her late desires, and parted mutual 

friends; since which time she has graced 

the purlieus of Covent-Garden with her 

presence, and is perfectly well known 

under the Piazza. She is about twenty- 

three, light hair and eyes, a good skin, 

and size compleatly adapted for this 

season, and which seems to please the 

greatest part of her friends and customers, 

who think two arms full of joy _twice_ as 

good as one; she is remarkably good- 

natured and affable to those who favour 

her with a visit, and will take almost 

any sum rather than turn her visitor 

away; 

 

( 85 ) 

 

away; but if you absolutely bilk her, 

beware of the consequence; for she is 

so well convinced that she does not 

merit such treatment, that she will, if 

possible, revenge the injury; but we hope 

none of our friends will ever pay her a 

whole noctunal visit without a small 

piece of gold in his pocket, as she is an 

able pasture maker, is up to every 

movement in the art of giving pleasure, 

and will oblige them in any way.
