Harris's List: Miss Ross



Harris's List: Miss Ross

This is where Miss Ross, from Harris's list lived.

Location: 2 Little Ryder Street, Piccadilly, London

Description: Reproduced from Harris's List of Covent Garden Ladies, 1791:

This lady's complexion is dark, as well as her eyes and hair. Her teeth are regular and white. She is very affable and engaging in her disposition, and calls forth all her powers to give delight, with uncommon success; her age is eighteen, and her entrance into life is about eight months.

She is a great dreamer, and frequently entertains her friends with her reveries, which are generally romantic and whimsical. She has been for sometime wavering with respect to religion, and a certain Methodist preacher has taken great pains to make a convert of her, but a roman catholic priest, who visits her a la sourdine, countermines in the evening all his rival's operations in the morning; so that between Methodism and Popery, she is a skiff upon the ocean tossed, and can not find a safe port to anchor in.

She is however, pretty well known to be in keeping by a clergyman who is dotingly fond of her, and in whose absence only is she come-at-able, at the moderate price of two or three guineas.

NB. Until 1863 the west arm of Ryder Street was called Little Ryder Street and the east arm Great Ryder Street.
