INDEX OF AUTHORS

pretty, in a coarse, buxom style; vulgar in manners, voice, and 

dress. She asked me to go home with her; I refused. She pressed 

me; I said I had no money. She still urged me, just to drive home 

with her and talk to her while she dressed for the evening. I 

consented. We drove to lodgings in Albany Street. We went in. She 

proceeded to kiss me. I remained cold, and told her again I had 

no money. She then said: 'That does not matter. You remind me of 

a boy I love. I want you to be my fancy boy.' I was flattered by 

this. I saw a good deal of her. She was sentimental. I never gave 

her any money. When I had some, she refused to take it, but 

allowed me to spend a little in buying her a present. On the 

night before I left London she wept. She wrote me illiterate, but 

affectionate letters. One day she wrote to me that she was to be 

kept by a man, but that she had made it a condition with him that 

she should be allowed to have me. I had never been in love with 

her, because of her vulgarity. I therefore took the earliest 

opportunity of letting matters cool, by not writing often, etc. 

The next thing I remember was my fascination, a few months later, 

for S.H. 

 

"She was not a regular prostitute. She had taken a very minor 

part in light opera. She was American by birth, young, slim, and 

spoke like a lady. Her hair was dyed; her breasts padded. She 

acted sentiment, but was less affectionate than E.B. I met her 

when she was out of a job. I gave her L2 whenever I met her. She 

was not mercenary. She was sensual. I became very much in love 

with her. I discovered her, however, writing letters to a fellow 

whom I had met one day when I was walking with her. He was only 

an acquaintance, but the brother of my most intimate friend. What 

I objected to was that in this letter to him she protested she 

did not care for me, but could not afford to give me up. She had 

to plead guilty, but I was so fascinated by her I still kept in 

with her, for a time, until she was kept by a man, and I had 

found other women to interest me. 

 

"Owing to the strict regulations made by the university 

authorities, prostitutes find it hard to make a living there, and 

I never had anything to do with one. My adventures were among the 

shopgirl class, and were of a comparatively innocent nature. One 

of them, however, M.S., a very undemonstrative shopgirl, was the 

only girl not a prostitute with whom I had so far had 

intercourse. 

 

"About this time I made the acquaintance of three other 

prostitutes, who, however, were nice, gentle, quiet girls, 

neither vulgar nor mercenary. A night passed with them always 

meant to me much more than mere intercourse. They 

were--especially two of them--of a sentimental nature, and would 

go to sleep in my arms. There was, on my part, not any passion,
