London Gentlemen

or The Harlot’s Saviours, being a retelling of Hogarth’s The Harlot’s Progress.
A young girl is rescued from the notorious procuress Mother Needham in a daring raid by 18th-century London's greatest artists and thinkers. They are left exhilarated and determined to embark on further secret adventures.
In Hogarth’s telling the girl dies at the age of 23 from venereal disease.
