An aukward Thing, when first she came to Town; Her Shape unfafhion'd, and her Face unknown : 60 She was my friend; I taught her first to spread

CAR DELI A.
CARDEL I A. But of what marble must that breast be form’d, 75 To gaze on Basset, and remain unwarm'a ? When Kings, Queens, Knaves, are set in decent
Expos'd in glorious heaps the tempting Bank,
Fir'd by the fight, all Reason I disdain ;
beats his Mechlin Cravat moves :
CARD ELI A.
LOVET. Cease your contention, which has been too long; I grow impatient, and the Tea's too strong. Attend, and yield to what I now decide ; The Equipage shall grace SMILINDA's Side : The Snuff-Box to CARDELIA I decree, Now leave complaining, and begin your Tea.

Question of Mrs. Howe.
HAT IS PRUDERY?
'Tis a Beldam, Seen with Wit and Beauty feldom. 'Tis a fear that starts at shadows. 'Tis, (no, 'tisn't) like Miss Meadows. 'Tis a Virgin hard of Feature, Old, and void of all good-nature; Lean and fretful; would seem wife; Yet plays the fool before she dies. 'Tis an ugly envious Shrew, That rails at dear Lepell and You.
