Miss Cl--rk, No. 116, _Wardour-street_. 

 

If any wench Venus's girdle wears, 

Altho' she be ever so ugly, 

Roses and lilys will quickly appear, 

And her face look wond'rous smugly. 

 

In some respeCt Miss C---- verifies 

this remark of Mr. Gay, for very little 

else than her wearing Venus's girdle can 

invite any to admire so plain a counte- 

nance; she is tall and lusty, with dark 

hair and eyes, a very indifferent set of 

teeth, and a very flat face; she is now 

twenty-five, has followed the trade some 

years, and never refuses any sum scarce 

that is offered her.

Miss W--ls--n, No 1, _Little-court, 

Castle-street, Leicester fields_. 

Nature for meat and drink provides a place, 

And when receiv'd they fill their certain space; 

Hence _thirst_ and _hunger_ may be satisfy'd, 

But this repletion is to love deny'd. 

 

This pretty piece of animation wants 

not the aid of art to make her shine one 

of the most conspicuous in the list of tra- 

ding nymphs; altho' she cannot be called 

very handsome, still she is a fine girl, 

and nature has sufficiently furnish'd her 

with those beauties the nicest hand of 

art would only deface. Her want of 

pride (which is in this age a very rare 

perfection) sets off to superior advantage 

every feature; her goodness of temper 

and disposition acts as a security to her 

most valuable acquaintance, and her just- 

ness of principle gains her the esteem of 

all who have the happiness of knowing 

her. She is the daughter of a gentleman 

who holds a considerable place under 

government, has had a genteel education, 

and seems quite untainted with the vices 

of the town; her great attachment to Mr. 

J----n, of the theatre, is a bar to her see- 

ing much company; with them that has 

the good fortune to sleep with her, will find 

she 

 

( 119 ) 

 

she still enjoys the pleasure without the 

least satiety; no licenc'd fair during the 

honey moon can charm with more rapture, 

or feel the poignant bliss with more ex- 

tacy; every inviting motion is us'd, every 

limb employ'd, to make the dying tran- 

sports meet. Her own home is the place 

where she in general sees her company, and 

every visitor that passes the night in her 

arms, she expects will make her two 

guineas richer.

Mrs. Eliza W--bst--r, No. 13, _John- 

Street, Yottenham Court Road_. 

 

Fancy itself, e'en in enjoyment, is 

But a dumb judge, and cannot tell its bliss. 

 

Mrs. W--bst--r is the daughter of a 

gentleman, deceased, has received a good 

education, which she improves by an 

excellent natural understanding; her age 

is twenty-one, her figure tall, and every 

limb elegantly proportioned; she pos- 

sesses an agreeable face, but we will not
