, an Anglo-Irishwoman writing from the later eighteenth century and publishing from the early nineteenth, was in one way a typical upper-class amateur writer, whose output was mostly diaries and letters, published after her death by a son. She entertained serious literary aspirations, however. Her private writings are carefully crafted; she left a draft autobiography; and she published her own poetry in several volumes, and a series of pamphlets, locally printed, on social and political subjects.
