Miss Gr--ce, No 124, _Portland street_. 

 

Forc'd to consent, but never to obey, 

Panting he lies; the _liquid minute_ pass'd, 

She feedeth on the _stream_ as on a prey, 

And calls it heavenly moisture. 

 

Some ladies prefer the profit, others 

the pleasure; some may divide it equally 

in their choice, and perhaps their may 

be, among Venus's tribe, the lady found 

almost indifferent to either; this lady 

however we may venture to affirm is not 

of the last stamp; she is a fine inviting 

looking girl, with very lively Cupidinous 

eyes and a good complexion, and scarcely 

ever to be found but in a good humour; 

and 

 

( 87 ) 

 

and her paramour, provided he can prove 

himself the good bed fellow, has nothing 

to fear in this lady's company, as money 

with her is not the entire object, it is the 

enjoyment that constitutes her happiness, 

and in that part she is a truly lovely ac- 

tress; her twining limbs never forget their 

office; her busy lips is mistress of the ge- 

nuine burning kiss, and the intermediate 

parts move in every direction that can 

possibly enhance the coming joy, which 

she will powerfully urge a repetition of, 

as long as dame nature can possibly af- 

ford it. She is at prefent in keeping by 

a French count, who though very jea- 

lous, often suffers her to sport it in his 

chariot, during which time her tell- 

tale black eyes, is busy in hunting for ad- 

mirers, and can tip the wink and con- 

duct him, if approved, to a safe harbour; 

and altho' not so very fond of money, 

she does not expect to have less than five 

guineas offered her. 

 

Miss 

 

( 88 ) 

 

Miss M--l--sw--rth, No. 62, _Wells- 

street, Oxford-street_. 

 

A summer's day will seem an hour but short, 

Being wasted in such time-be guiling sport. 

 

Without possessing any particular at- 

tracing charms this lady pleases, and has 

many admirers. Her face is agreeable 

without being pretty, she is well made, 

without being strictly genteel; and a friend 

to mirth and good humour, without vul- 

garity. She carries on a snug good trade, 

without going much abroad, and is in bed 

a very amorous companion. If she does go 

abroad it is generally to some of the pub- 

iic hops, where she contrives to select out 

her partner for the night, and will con- 

vince him (although she dances well a- 

midst twenty couple) that she _cuts_ a much 

better _figure_ with only _one_, and being now 

only twenty years of age,with good nature, 

affability, and love depicted in all her 

actions, no one that has three guineas in 

his pocket, ought to be against parting 

with two thirds to oblige her. 

 

Miss

Miss Betsy H--st--ng, No. 30, _Duke- 

street, St. James's_. 

 

Blest with such charms, the snowy heart could
