her _eyes and limbs_, with any lady from 

Billingsgate, or Jack tar from Wapping; 

but her greatest fault, and what makes 

more disgusting her other imperfections, 

is her violent attachment to drinking; 

she generally contrives to pin her basket 

completely by nine o'clock; then she 

swears most abominably, and is as great 

a proficient in barefaced indecency, as 

Messalina of antient Rome. We there- 

fore set her up as a beacon; in spite of 

all, when she pleases, she can be a good 

companion, and speaks the English lan- 

guage remarkably well; she is never de- 

nied to any one, except Mr. G. a watch- 

maker, in the city, should be engaged 

with her, he being her particular friend.

Mrs. Charlotte F--ne, No. 41, _King 

Street, Soho_. 

 

To tell the beautie's of the place, 

How weak is human tongue; 

The noble fringes which it grace, 

In golden ringlets hung. 

 

Charlotte received a good education, 

and was once far above the perambu- 

lating 

 

[ 140 ] 

 

lating class of nymphs, and might, per- 

haps, have remained so, had not her 

violent attachment to the curs'd buckle 

and belt society, rendered her disgusting 

in the eyes of all her friends; Mr. 

G--bl--t, brother to a tallow chandler, 

of Carnaby-Market, took particular no- 

tice of her, and removed her once from 

her hated crew, allowed her a tolerable 

provision, and would have continued 

her friend, had not her rage for the old 

society made him forfeit his esteem. She 

is now rather in the wane, having seen 

at least twenty-eight summers, tall, and 

very well proportioned; her complexion 

is but indifferent, but, being a native of 

Germany, is not to be wondered at; she 

speaks French also, but we cannot get 

her to confess she has been ten years on 

the town, unless you pay her a _guinea fee_ 

for confessing.

Mrs, W--tp--l, No. 2, _Poland-Street, 

Oxford-Street_. 

 

She smil'd, and gave a kiss might Jove disarm, 

And from his hand the brandished thunder 

charm. 

 

If this good natured willing girl should 

chance to be engaged herself, she will 

with 

 

[ 141 ] 

 

with the greatest pleasure provide her 

gentleman with another companion; 

she is a genteel woman, and a very 

chearful companion, completely mis- 

tress of the sport, and can _turn_ and 

_twist_ in all the enchanting folds of love, 

and press you to her breast, 

 

In all the extatic raptures of a lover; 

 

will enjoy, or seem to enjoy, every _high 

toned_ sensation; will bend eagerly to 

meet the _succulent shower_ of b1iss, and 

repeat the amorous content as frequently 

as you please, being first _convinced_ that 

you will make her a guinea richer in the 

morning.
