Miss Charlotte Casdel

Miss Charlotte C—sd—l, No. 25, Titchfield-Street, Oxford-Street.

'Till haply wandering in the fields of air,
Some fiend had whisper'd C—sd—l, thou art fair.

We cannot help thinking but this was the case with our charmer in question; who, as we have heard, felt her first desire for the sport from meer inclination; she is tall and genteely framed, a pretty innocent looking face, and a pair of tempting breasts, that nineteen blooming autumns have brought to full maturity; a lively blue eye and flaxen hair; a pretty reserved manner, (excepting when exhilirated by the chearful glass) which adds a particular grace to every feature, and makes her doubly pleasing, fully verifying Dr. Armstrong,

The coyley yielded kiss charms most,
And gives the most sincere delight;
Cheapness offends.

Her temper is sweet, her manners affable, and her dispofition good. She is remarkably fond of dancing, and on that account frequents most of the public hops; where she generally picks up her spark, which is no longer a spark for her, if he is obliged to change the last guinea to pay for coach hire.
