Harris's List Covent Garden Ladies - AbeBooks
Come ye gay sons of pleasure, come and feast Your every sense, and lave your souls in love, Fearless advance, nor think of ills to come; Here taste variety, of love's sweet gifts, Pure and unstain'd as at kind nature's birth. THE parterre of Venus was never more elegantly filled, never did the loves and graces shine, with more splendor than at present; Marylebone, the now grand paradise of love, and Covent Garden, her elder born, beam with uncommon ardor; nor is our antient Drury unfrequented; no sooner do the stars above shed their benign in- fluence, but our more attracting ones below bespangle every walk, and make a heaven on earth; Bagnigge, St.
George's Spa, with all their sister shops, deal out each night their choiceft gifts of love; nor with the sons of pleasure be disappointed should they extend their travels still farther east, and visit the purlieus of White Chapel. The Royalty is over full, and Wapping, Shadwell, and the neighbouring fields lend all their lovely train to glad each night; these then shall be our walks; from these gay spots of pleasure shall we call love's purest sweets,.
By thus extending our researches we shall be able to suit every constitution, and every pocket, every whim and fancy that the most extravagant sensualist can desire.

We must now bid adieu to our courteous reader, and wish him every success that youth, health, love, and wine can possibly inspire him with; hoping, at the same time, that they will throw a friendly veil over all the unavoidable errors that may have happen'd in this work, and excuse that disagreeable tautology, which, for want of other words, we are necessitated to make, and not to be displeas'd if they find the same ladies in this list that appear'd before in other names; for, as their residence is chang'd as often as their names, it is almost impossible but some such mistakes must happen; and hope that the attention that is now paid to the procuring the best and most respectable, will wipe off every other blot.
We likewise take leave of the ladies, and are particularly happy to think that what was formerly seen in the eyes of our world a disgrace, is now considered pleasing, delightful, and honourable. Harris's List of Covent-Garden Ladies for the year Harris's List of Covent-Garden Ladies was published annually between the years and as a directory for gentlemen seeking the services of ladies of negotiable virtue in and around the Covent Garden area.
