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

Miss Noble

Miss N—ble, No. 10, Plough Court, Fetter Lane.

She darted a sweet kiss,
The wanton prelude to a farther b
liss; Such as might kindle frozen appetite,
And fire e'en wasted nature with delight.

She is really a fine girl, with a lovely fair complexion, a most engaging behaviour and affable disposition. She has a most consummate skill in reviving the dead; for as she loves nothing but active life, she is happy when she can restore it: and her tongue has a double charm, both when speaking and when silent; for the tip of it, properly applied, can talk eloquently to the heart, whilst no sound pervades the ear and send such feelings to the central spot, that immediately demands the more noble weapon to close the melting scene.
