N° 311. TUESDAY, FEB. 26, 1711-12.

Nec Veneris pharetris macer est, aut lampade fervet :
Inde faces ardent, veniunt à dote sagittæ.

JUV. Sat. vi. 137.
He sighs, adores, and courts her ev'ry hour :
Who wou'd not do as much for such a dower?



Am amazed that, among all the variety of characters with which you have enriched your speculations, you have never given us a picture of those audacious young fellows among us who commonly go by the name of the fortune-stealers. You must know, sir, I am one who live in a continual

apprehension of this sort of people, that lie in wait, day and night, for our children, and may be considered as a kind of kidnappers within the law. I am the father of a young heiress, whom I begin to look upon as marriageable, and who has looked upon herself as such for above these six years. She is now in the eighteenth year

The fortune-hunters have already cast their eyes upon


of her age.
