The Comfortable Courtesan
Madame Clorinda Cathcart is a most exclusive courtesan in Regency London, very comfortably situated, with a wide acquaintance. Besides her more obvious attributes and activities, she is always ready to listen to her friends’ problems and to devize stratagems to solve them. Her twelve volumes of Memoirs describe her own various changes of circumstance, and those occurring among her ever-widening circle.
Clorinda Cathcart’s Circle
So great was the interest aroused by these Memoirs and their delineation of the activities of this circle, that there has been voiced a considerable desire to learn more of them. A number of volumes, therefore, has been compiled presenting the stories of Clorinda’s friends, acquaintances and associates. It is hoped that they will provide the same entertainment, and mayhap instruction, as her own accounts.
