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

Mrs Lewis

Mrs L—w—s, Upper Charlotte Street, Rathbone Place.

Sure nature cast one in her softest mould,
All mild and gentle, never made to scold.

West Indies gave birth to this daughter of Momus by Venus; the warmth of the clime brought the charming girl's feeling to maturity at an early period, and a gentleman, whose name she assumes, first trod down Hymen's fence, and made her a perfect woman; but the natural warmth of her constitution soon compelled her to seek variety in our great mart; she therefore left her good friend, and now presents the world with a sweet chearful disposition, fine dark hair, and eyes of the same friendly hue; fine teeth, is short and plump, and we have not had her above eighteen months; she expects three guineas for a whole night, but if you make a short visit, one pound one shilling is the least.
