The pleasant and delightful history of Gillian of Croydon: containing, her birth and parentage: Her first Amour, with the sudden Death of her Sweet-Heart: Her leaving her Father's House in Disguise, and becoming Deputy to a Country Midwife; with a very odd and humoursome Adventure before a Justice of the Peace, for screening a Child under her Hoop-Petticoat: Her discovery of a Love-Intrigue between her Mistress's Daughter, and a perjur'd, false-hearted Young-Man, which she relates in the tragical History of William and Margaret: Her Account of a Country Wedding in Kent; with several merry Passages which attended it. Illustrated with suitable Cuts. The whole done much after the same method as those celebrated novels, by Mrs. Eliza Haywood.
