She is now in her eighteenth year, and has 

only been engaged in our business ten 

months, and tho' she cannot be stiled an 

epicure, she is most undoubtedly a glut- 

ton, being particularly partial to that meal 

where _four haunches_ are served up at once: 

in her company they are sure to be dress'd 

in taste, for she always chuses to _spit_ them 

herself; and always has the greatest 

share 

 

( 99 ) 

 

share in _preparing_ the _sauce_; her price for 

turning _cook_ is at least three guineas.

Miss Fr--s--r, _Charlotte street, Rathbone 

Place_. 

 

Not less her blandishments than beauty move 

At once both giving and confessing love. 

 

This lady is about twenty-five, very 

short, with dark hair and black eyes; 

and was it not for her nose, which is quite 

of the pug cast, we might stile her a com- 

pleat black beauty; her _toute ensemble_ 

is very agreeable, and her blandishments 

make her a desirable companion, as she 

dresses in the height of the _ton_, sports an 

elegant _rattler_, and at present figures a- 

way in the first line. She has got a smat- 

tering of the French and Italian (from 

which last place she is lately come over,) 

where we are told a prince of the blood 

took particular notice of her, and learnt 

her musick and dancing; it is about ten 

months since we have been able to pre- 

sent her to our readers, and if you sleep 

a night with her, not less than half the 

number of guineas will satisfy. 

 

Miss 

 

( 100 ) 

 

Mrs. W---d, No 3, _Lisle-street, Leicester 

Fields_. 

 

Oh! that deceit should steal such gentle shapes, 

And with a virtuous vizard hide deep vice. 

 

Mens palates are as various as their 

faces, and like a good ordinary we would 

offer up a dish for every palate. In the 

time of the ancient Romans we are told 

that the fat paps of the sow where held a 

great dainty. For those that have a re- 

lish for such a repast we recommend 

Mrs. Wood, and can assure them, such 

paps as she possesses are seldom to be met 

with. She keeps the house, and is wife 

to 'squire P--'s coachman, late of the sta- 

bles, Bolton street; her front is well bra- 

zen'd; her face is continually upon the 

full grin, and as for talking bawdy, swea- 

ring, or bare fac'd indecency, she could 

vie with the ancient _Meselina_ of Rome; 

she dispenses her favours for any sum to 

one whose arms are sufficiently long to 

embrace her, and may do now, but in 

the dog days must be intolerable. 

 

Miss 

 

( 101 ) 

 

Miss J--nes, No. 75, _Newman-Street, 

Oxford-Street_. 

 

------------Oh she's all softness, 

All melting mild, and calm as a rock'd infant; 

Nor can you wake her into cries, by heaven!
