Harris's List of Covent-Garden Ladies for the year 1788

Miss Linsey

Miss L—ns—y, No. 13, Bentick Street, Berwick Street.

Close in the arms she languishingly lies,
With dying looks, short breath, and swimming eyes.

To all lovers of carrots we would recommend this fair complex, and blue ey'd nymph; she is now steering into the nineteenth year, and has very little of the vulgarity too often found in the sisterhood, but would be rather silent than speak nonsense: the mere sensualist will not find her quite to his fancy, but she will please the delicate and sensible, who can spend the dull pause of joy with her agreeably, till call'd by nature to repetition; in which, as well as in conservation, we are informed she is equally charming.
