Harris's List of Covent-Garden Ladies for the year 1788
Miss Fanny Courtney
Miss Fanny Co—rtn—y, at Mrs. Woods, Lisle Street, Leicester Fields.
My heart's so full of joy,
That I could do some wild extravagance
Of love in public, and the foolish world,
That knows not tenderness, might think me mad.
This lady is fair, of a good size, very chatty, fond of obliging, and far from being mercenary: the more agreeable her her man, the less of money she expects or demands. It is true, she has other customers that make up for what she may loose by her attachments to pleasure; so that between the one and the other, she is very well off, and we prophesy will be long in vogue; we have known her only six months, and have reason to think very few has known her longer.
