move 

Such melting beauties sovereign claims of love; 

She sweetly smiles, unconscious of her pow'r, 

And with her pleasing chat beguiles each hour. 

 

It is an undoubted fact she, must 

please, she must charm the heart, and 

win the foul to exquisite delight; how 

can it be otherwise! behold her eyes, 

drinking their living moisture in cups of 

the purest hazel, and holding converse 

with the heart, in such a language, the 

least meeting glance must immediately un- 

derstand; behold her hair, glossy as the 

pearly drops that gild the flow'ry field 

when Phoebus first his eastern rays ex- 

tends, and soft as turtles down; which, 

when suffered to sport in nature's wanton 

folds, hold all the graces in their sportive 

curls; view next her teeth, as white as 

the polish'd elephants, and beautiful as 

white; 

 

Cheeks from whence the roses seek their 

bloom, 

And lips from whence the zephyrs steal perfume 

 

but all these charms united, fall very 

short of her mental qualifications: her 

lively 

 

( 90 ) 

 

lively wit charms the heart, and makes 

her the desirable companion; her beha- 

viour, Which in company never deviates 

from the strict line of modesty, gains her 

the truest merit: her apartments are very 

genteel, and her dress corresponds with 

her person. Her professional abilities 

are not less to be priz'd than her other na- 

tural gifts; her natural structure in those 

parts is so well adapted, that it must 

please; and every additional improvement 

to enhance the coming pleasure our deli- 

cate charmer is well acquainted with; 

being now only nineteen she cannot, in 

the least, have lost the keen edge of amo- 

rous transport; neither are the essential 

parts at all deprived of their magical 

power; the liquid eye streams with the 

maddening fire of youth, with all the 

desires of unsatiated love; the panting 

heave, accompanying the quick inter- 

rupted sigh, speaks desire in its fullest 

tone; and so mutually does she inter- 

change the liquid store at the die-away 

convulsive moment, that all her soul seems 

centred in the blissful spot. She is tall, 

and elegantly form'd in every limb; 

Mr. Arch--r, the musician, is at present 

her favourite man; him she will oblige 

at any time, from every one else she 

expects three guineas. 

Miss 

 

( 91 ) 

 

Miss D--v--nsh--re, No. 9, _Queen 

Anne Street East_ 

 

Fool! not to know that love endures no tie, 

And Jove but laughs at lovers perjury. 

 

This lady is a native of Devonshire, 

and has only been _one_ of _us_ four months; 

she is of a fine fair complexion, love 

tinctured cerulean eyes, fine teeth, and 

genteel good figure; a charming partner 

in a dance, a eery good companion by 

the fire side, and dearly loves an agreeable
