On the Lady Manchester

Written on his admission to the Kit-Cat Club,
in compliance with the rule that every new member 
should name his toast,
and write a verse in her praise.

While haughty Gallia's dames, that pread
O'er their pale cheeks, an artful red,
Beheld this beauteous stranger there
In native charms, divinely fair;
Confusion in their looks they show'd;
And with unborrow'd blushes glow'd.
