Miss Molesworth

Miss M—l—sw—rth, No. 62, Wells-street, Oxford-street.

A summer's day will seem an hour but short,
Being wasted in such time-beguiling sport.

Without possessing any particular attracing charms this lady pleases, and has many admirers. Her face is agreeable without being pretty, she is well made, without being strictly genteel; and a friend to mirth and good humour, without vulgarity. She carries on a snug good trade, without going much abroad, and is in bed a very amorous companion. If she does go abroad it is generally to some of the pubiic hops, where she contrives to select out her partner for the night, and will convince him (although she dances well amidst twenty couple) that she cuts a much better figure with only one, and being now only twenty years of age,with good nature, affability, and love depicted in all her actions, no one that has three guineas in his pocket, ought to be against parting with two thirds to oblige her.
