13. How pretty this man looks
How pretty this Man looks, with Sword, Hat, and Cane/ One Lady seems Sick,

Tho' not quite so grand, is a more easy dress.

Description of item:
Printed source: sold by John Bowles at the Black Horse in Cornhill
Pray Madam come this way, one Gentleman crys,/ This Walk is more free both

18. Such short gowns as these
Such short Gowns as these, are much used in France;/ And the Men, and the
Women cut capers and dance./ The Ladys they Paint, and their backsides they
show,/ The Men hop, and skip, and each one is a Beau/ Would you see men like
monkeys; to France you must go.

This Girl to get money does dance on a Rope/ She will sure have good luck if
her neck is not broke/ Quite hard is her fortune, her fate most unkind/ If
no way for a living but this she can find.
