Covent Garden Journal (Newspaper) - July 25, 1752, London, Middlesex whfch are ready to receive him irfCovent So far however I hope I may fay with out that among all the Schools at the there is none where the Science of GoodBreeding is taught no like the excellent Leffons on the which I have quoted a and which I do mod earneftly re commend to all my young Hence the learned Profeffions produce fuch excellent Charafters of Humour the Rudenefs of and however dignified or dif affords foch pleafant Stories to divert private and fometimes the I come now to the beautiful Part of the in the Senfe I here ufe the I am allured can hadly for the mod Part be faid to have catiom As to the Counterpart of my Countr the Country I ap that except in the Article of the and perhaps in that of being barely able co read and there is very little Difference between the Edu cation of a Squires and that of his Dairy who is mpft ly her principal Companion nay thelit tle Difference which there I am a not in the Favour of the Former by being conftantly flattered with her Beauty and her made the vain eft andmoft felfconceited Thing at the fame Time that fuch Care is taken to inftil into her the Principles of Bafhful nefe and that fhe becomes afhamtd and afraid of fhe knows not If by any Chance tins poor Creature drops as it into the how abfurd muft be her Beha viour If a Man looks at fhe is con and if he fpeaks to fhe is frightened out of her She in as if flhe thought the whole Sex was engaged in a Confpiracy to pofifefs themfeives of her Peribn and This poor it is however fhe may appear to her own efpecially if fhe is is rather an Objeft of of juit Ridicule but what hall we fay when Time or Mar riage have carried off all this Bafhfufhefs and and when Aukward arc embelJifhed with the fame tho perhaps not the fame kind of which are to be found in a Here fure is a plen tiful Source of all that various Humour which we find in the Charader of a Coun try All I will be readily allowed i but to deny GoodBreeding to the may be the more Dan gerous befides the Pro feflbrs of Reading and the French and the Mufic and of Modern the Whift all concur in forming this Charac t The Manners Mafter alone I am afraid is And what is the Con t fequence not only Bafhfulnefs arid Feat1 are intirely but Modefty and Difcretion are taken off at the fame So far from running away fhe runs after the Men and inftead of blufhing when a modeft Man looks at or fpeaks to fhe can without any fuch Emotion to ftare an impudent Fellow in the and fometimes te utter if he be not very impudent may put him to the Hence all thofe agreable Ingredients which form the Humour of a Rampant Woman of the I cannot quit this Part of my in which I have been obliged to deal a little more freely than I am inclined with the lovdiell Part of the without preferving my own Charader of Good by faying that this laft is by much the moft rare and that eve ry Individual among my either is or may when fhe an Example of a contrary
