and should meet with, and please Miss 

K--p--n, she will take as length'ned 

a ride with you as you please; and if 

you have the prudence to draw up 

the blinds, she Will be as free as you please, 

and you may enjoy her charms, _Jehu_ like, 

as long as you can. She is framed for 

love, and will melt like a snow ball in the 

sun. She will embrace you with un- 

feigned rapture, open _all_ her charms to 

receive your manly tribute, and perhaps 

appoint another meeting. 

 

We have rather enlarged on this lady, 

on account of the singularity of her dis- 

position; and what will add to your won- 

der 

 

( 110 ) 

 

der is, that she never will receive any 

money, but take the offer as an affront. 

These circumstances make us conclude 

that K--lp--n, the name she has assumed 

sometimes, is not her real name, and 

that she is not a woman of the town, but 

some married city lady, who takes this 

method of getting home deficiencies sup- 

plied abroad, and, as she is cautious of 

her character, uses these precautions. 

By not going to any house, she avoids 

detection; by chusing none but those 

whose conversation is congenial to her 

own, she obliges none but men of sense 

and honour; and by he constantly re- 

fusing money, she demonstrates that love 

for love is her motto; that her love of 

the sport is her motive; perhaps she 

may have another reason for chusing a 

leathern conveniency as the scene of her 

delights. We have been told that the 

undulating motion of the coach, with 

the pretty little occasional jolts, con- 

tribute greatly to enhance the pleasure 

of the critical moment, if all matters are 

rightly placed. This she may have ex- 

perienced, and therefore as pleasure is 

her search, no wonder she prefers every 

delicate addition to the gross sum. 

 

 

Emma, 

 

( 111 ) 

 

Emma, _at Mother Gray's, No. 30, 

Market-Lane, near the Opera House_. 

 

In the middle of me, 

You plainly may see, 

A thing that will suit every man; 

And when you are in it, 

The critical minute, 

Ensure as fast as you can. 

 

A young tit of Mother Gr--y's own 

procuring, and that our reader should 

not mistake the old abbess, we will give 

a short description of her. If you chance 

to visit her in the morning, the smell of 

yellow usquebaugh will salute your nos- 

trils, of which she takes copious draughts 

before breakfast. In all her actions she 

shews the lewdness of a monkey, and 

the letchery of a goat; she has lately 

been _fired_ by P----, the French fri- 

zeur, but knowing the use of murcury, 

she applied it in such a manner that she 

procured an effectual salivation, and 

enabled her to take into her house the 

fame squinting gentleman that present 

acts as her _fine man_; she boasts of her 

knowledge of great men, and there is
