flatter her by calling it a pretty one, be- 

ing too thinly formed to constitute beau- 

ty, and too much pitted with the small 

pox to be stiled handsome; still she 

commands 

 

( 120 ) 

 

commands a beautiful pair of dark eyes, 

which give a most pleasing, amorous 

expression to her whole countenance, and 

makes her, tho' not a pretty, still a very 

desirable girl; she possesses a lively and 

entertaining manner, with an affable dis- 

position, and refined, delicate sentiments, 

which has lately been much been abused 

by the brutality of her late keeper, Mr. 

K--d, well known at Garraway's cof- 

fee house, for the lowness of his birth, 

and still greater meanness of his senti- 

ments. He was some time since a corn- 

factor, but has now relinquished that, 

and nOw all his business, delight, and 

employment, seems to be that of perse- 

cuting Mrs. W----. In the course of 

last summer he arrested her for the pal- 

try sum a of twenty-five pounds, which, 

from the natural consequences of not 

paying immediately, amounted to sixty 

pounds, and upwards. Indeed, could 

the Whole conduct of this old r--l be 

summed up, it would be impossible to 

describe his cruelty to Mrs. W. which 

proceeds merely from his resolution not 

to live with a wretch, whose cruelty, 

and her own disposition, obliges her to 

despise. It is from such kind of usage 

as this that has taught Mrs. W. prudence 

and 

 

[ 121 ] 

 

and discretion in all her engagements 

with the men, nor will she ever admit a 

visitor to take any liberties, without first 

knowing the value he fits on her com- 

pany; and from the appearance which 

her present keeper enables her to make, 

she expects to be something consider- 

able.

Mrs. Sp--nc--r, No. 35, _Newman- 

Street, Oxford-Road_. 

 

Wine whets the wit, improves its native force, 

And gives a pleasant flavour to discourse. 

 

This is fully verified in Mrs. S. who 

is never so good a companion as when a 

_little_ enlivened with the juice of the grape 

but, always guided by prudence and dis- 

cretion, she never goes so far as to render 

herself the least unpleasant. Her figure 

is tall, elegant and stately. 

 

Her full orb'd chest lie open to the gale, 

And teach the lily whiteness in the vale. 

 

Her legs and feet are particularly neat 

and clean; she sings a good song, is a 

very good friend to mirth and good hu- 

mour, and always steers clear of vulga- 

rity. 

 

( 122 ) 

 

rity. She is now in her twentieth year, 

possessed of every charm that encourag- 

ing. age can boast, and but a very few 

months has left Hampshire; we therefore 

think two guineas bestowed upon her 

cannot be regretted.
