It is not generally known that the celebrated woman of pleasure had a foster-brother called Daniel. He too wrote his memoirs, which reveal him to have been as accommodating as his sister and as equally versed as his sister in the ways of the polite society of his time. They have been painstakingly edited by Francis King, who explains in his introduction how this priceless literary heirloom came to be in his possession. If he is to be believed, these memoirs offer a unique and intimate insight into the life of a young man in eighteenth-century England, and his rise to prominence entirely through the diligent application of those gifts with which he was endowed
