Mr. Rowe's JANE SHORE.
Defigned for Mrs. OLDFIELD.
Rodigious this! the Frail-one of our Play From her own Sex fhould mercy find to-day! You might have held the pretty head afide,
Peep'd in your fans, been serious, thus, and cry'd,
"How ftrangely you expose yourself, my dear ?”
Our sex are still forgiving at their heart;
There are, 'tis true, who tell another tale,
That virtuous ladies envy while they rail;
Would you enjoy foft nights and folid dinners?
But, pray, which of you all would take her back?
If, after all, you think it a disgrace,
To fee a piece of failing flesh and blood,
In all the rest so impudently good;
Faith, let the modelt Matrons of the town
Come here in crouds, and ftare the ftrumpet down.
