len head_, as if conscious of its presumption; 

but the _mistress_ of this formidable _enemy_ 

is well acquainted with the means of re- 

storing life to the _vanquished memmber_, but 

only to make it more sensible of its ina- 

bility. Mercenary views are far from 

what she aims at; she can give and 

receive a _luscious_ share of pleasures 

of _copulation_; but beginning to know the 

accustom'd ways of the baser sort of 

men, and not being always confident of 

the honour of her _paramour_, if he is a 

stranger, 

 

( 137 ) 

 

stranger, she must receive her compli- 

ment of half a guinea, or a guinea, ac- 

cording to the length of the intended 

visit, before she proceeds to any kind of 

business.

Her every thought, and wishes, and desires, 

Agree with yours, and burn with mutual fires. 

 

This merry, little lively tit appears to 

be about sixteen, and is never to be met 

without a smile upon her countenance, 

and a frisky song at her tongue's end; 

she is very short, a brunette in com- 

plexion, with a lustfully sparkling eye, 

and jetty ringlets down her back. The sis- 

ter hills, with their bewitching coral 

pinnacles, are irresistibly firm, and speak 

their silent language very forcibly to the 

heart. The grove beneath, shading the 

font of life, is drest in sable, and se- 

cures the _internal mansion_ from any sud- 

den _attack_. She is generally very expe- 

ditious in dying, therefore we would ad- 

vise her antagonist to push the warm con- 

test

est with agility, or it will not be a _dead_ 

heat; she is a very willing and amorous 

bedfellow, never against repetition, and 

such a good natured, and good tem- 

per'd creature, that she seems to say to 

every one, 

 

With thee secur'd,--I'd smile at fortune's 

frowns, 

And all her threats defy,--nor court her 

smiles.

You gaulky steeple, you stalking stag, 

Your husband must come from Brobdignag. 

 

It is a pity that so noble a piece could 

not be preserved solely for the use of his 

Majesty's Grenadiers; she is more than 

six foot; she is now about twenty-five, 

possesses an elegance in her person, (we 

wish we could pay the same compliment 

to her actions) light hair and eyes, which 

are continually lighted up by the all pow- 

erful brandy bottle; as she excells in the 

height of stature so is she the height of 

good nature, for she never refuses any 

gentleman 

 

( 139 ) 

 

gentleman her favors, that has any mo- 

ney in his pocket; she is surely too the 

height of vulgarity, for she will come
