friend and a chearful glass; many a 

_man_ of war hath been her willing prisoner, 

and paid a proper ransom; her port is 

said to be well guarded by a light brown 

_chevaux-de-freize_, and parted from _Bum- 

bay_ by a very small pleasant isthmus. 

The entry is rather straight; but when 

once in, their is very good _riding_; and 

when they have paid _port customs_, they 

are suffered to slip out very easily, though 

generally followed by a salute from _Crown- 

point_, which hastens their departure by 

causing the floodgates to open com- 

modiously. She is so brave, that she is 

ever ready for an engagement; cares not 

how soon she comes to _close quarters_, and 

loves to fight _yard arm_ and _yard arm_, and 

be 

 

( 92 ) 

 

be briskly _boarded_; she is best pleased 

when her opponent is _well armed_, and 

Would despise any warrior, who had not 

_two_ stout _balls_ to block up her _covered 

way_, and did not carry metal enough to 

leave _two pounds_ behind him.

Mrs. N--t--n, No. 12, _Suffolk-street, 

Cavendish-Square_. 

 

The blooming looks of spring, and lovely red 

As opening roses, on her cheeks are spread; 

Her eyes that sparkle like the stars above, 

Appear the armory and throne of love, 

Whilst thousands of alluring graces Wait, 

And mingling charms form love's triumphant 

state. 

 

This lady is tolerably handsome, with 

a fine dark durable complexion, fine 

hazel eyes and good teeth, which, by a 

perpetual smile, or rather grin, she has 

acquired a very convenient knack of 

shewing; she is tall, and the goodness of 

her temper and disposition render her a 

very agreeable companion and makes 

her at present much sought after. We 

hear the first toast she drinks every day is 

to 

 

( 93 ) 

 

to the health of Mr. N----, a gentle- 

man of the law, whose name she has 

taken the liberty of substituting for her 

own; she has not yet been a year on the 

town, yet has done great execution 

amongst the tender hearts of the men of 

the _ton_, many of which she has kindled 

into a flame. She is as fond of variety 

as any _baronet_'s lady, and will display her 

naked beauties to any curious observer, 

without giving them the trouble to 

mount On any other _man's shoulder_ to take 

a peep at them. She is very tall, and 

the _pit_ in her black heath is said to have 

a considerable profundity, and has baff- 

led the art of many a gauger to take it 

precisely with the best dipping rules; yet 

though the attempt has been unsuccessful, 

it hath not been undelightful, for the 

passage being straight much pleasure has 

been derived by the _gauger_, during which 

pleasing pastime 

 

A gentle warmth invades her glowing breast, 

And while she fondly gazes on thy face,
