as pretty a leg and foot as man would 

wish to divide, which any good natured 

man, with two guineas in his pocket 

that he has no objection to spare, may 

lie between the whole livelong night, 

and taste all the raptures he can possibly 

expect to meet with, in one as yet so 

untutored in the art.

Madam D--sl--z, No. 46, _Frith-street, 

Soho_. 

 

Si javois pour heritage, 

Le tresor le plus charmant, 

je vous en donnerois en gage, 

Et mon coeur pour un present. 

 

It is only six months that this lady has 

left her native country, and at present 

speaks 

 

( 130 ) 

 

speaks very little English. She is young 

and lively, (but still does not seem to 

possess so much vivacity as the majority 

of her countrywomen;) she loves to 

revenge her countrymen's cause on the 

English, by doing what the most valor- 

ous Frenchman would never effect, that 

is, to bring Britons on their knees; she 

is now about twenty two, rather short 

and fat, with a plump face, and such a 

roguish lear in her eye, that cannot be 

resisted. Several of our brave officers 

have spent some of their _best blood_ in her 

service, and regretted they had no more 

to _shed_. Her lovely dark hair seems like 

a net to catch lovers, and her lower tend- 

rils, which sport on her alabaster mount 

of Venus, are formed to give delight. She 

has one qualification which many English 

girls want, which is a certain cleanliness 

in the Netherlands. They are contented 

to wash their faces, necks, and hands; 

but Mademoiselle, like many of her 

countrywomen, thinks that not enough; 

she performs constant ablutions on the 

gulph of pleasure, and keeps it constantly 

fresh, cool, and clean, never putting 

a morsel into that mouth, till she has 

fully absterged every possible remnant of 

the last meal. She constantly mounts 

her 

 

( 131 ) 

 

her _bidet_, and with a large sponge laves 

the whole extent of the parish of the 

mother of all saints. Some may, perhaps, 

think her a female spy, or a smuggler; 

but surely a girl, who so freely discloses 

her own secrets, can have no improper 

aim at those of government; and her 

commodity cannot be pronounced as 

contraband when it hath so often been 

duly entered. 

 

She dresses quite in the French stile 

and taste, lays on a profusion of rouge 

and pearl powder, and is not particularly 

partial to money, but will condescend to 

take a couple of guineas, _not as payment, 

but solely as 'une gage d'amour_.
