  • The Introduction to the Work or Bill of Fare to the Feast
  • A short Description of my Childhood with particular Attention to the Suff'rings of my Step-Mother, Lady Bellars
  • In which I meet my first Great Man, and learn the Truth of that Maxim: "'Tis easier to be a Great Man in one's Work than in one's Life"
  • Of Gardening, Great Houses, the Curse of Fashion, Paradise Lost, a Family Supper with a Famous Visitor in Attendance, and the Foolish Curiosity of Virgins of Seventeen
  • Of Flip-Flaps, Lollipops, Picklocks, Love-Darts, Pillicocks, and the Immortal Soul, together with some Warnings against Rakes, and some Observations upon the Erotick Proclivities of Poets
  • Some Reflections upon Harmony, Order, and Reason, together with many surprizing Adventures which follow one upon the other, in rapid Succession
  • Venus is introduced, with some pretty Writing; and we learn more of the Am'rous Dalliances of Lord Bellars than we, or our Heroine, would wish to know
  • Containing the sundry Adventures of our Heroine in preparing her Escape, as well as many edifying Digressions upon Doweries, upon Love, upon the Beauties of the English Countryside, upon the Wisdom of Horses, upon the Necessity for Disguises, and, finally, upon the Preferability, at all Times, of being a Man rather than a Woman
