Title: An English sloop engaging a Dutch Man of war.

Description: The growth in London’s maritime trade during the 18th century brought more and more ships to the port. With the ships came sailors and inevitably there was an increase in the supply of prostitutes to meet the growing demand from both British and foreign seafarers.
