Lady Caroline Dawson,
Countess of Portarlington
DAWSON was the fifth daughter of Lord Bute, and had married on 1st January of
this same year (1778) John, eldest son of Viscount Carlow, and she and her
husband were then living with his father at Dawson Court, Queen's County.
Mrs. Delany thus describes her shortly before her marriage: "Lady
Caroline is a genius in painting and musick, and has made a great progress in
both; she has a clear, sweet voice, under good management, and less of the
yell than most of her contemporarys. She is extremely good-humoured and
sensible, but is one in whom many pleasing accomplishments are a little hurt
by an awkward habit: she has no but a of a laugh at whatever is said or that
she says herself."
She was the pivot on which most of the affections of her own family were centred. At this time Lady Caroline was a bride of a few months' standing. and Louisa, her youngest and favourite sister, was only twenty-one years old.
