    The article includes extracts from an unfinished comedy, including the following: '"Will you be at Lady ——'s?—I'm told the Bramin is to be there, and the new French philosopher."—"No—it will be pleasanter at Lady——'s conversazione—the cow with two heads will be there."' 'The loadstone of true beauty draws the heaviest substances—not like the fat dowager, who frets herself into warmth to get the notice of a few papier mâché fops, as you rub Dutch sealing-wax to draw paper.' (285)
