She knew French, Italian, Spanish, German, Arabic, Persian, Greek, Latin, Hebrew, some Syriac, and Erse, and was studied in music, mathematics, and astronomy. Henrietta Bowdler, her great friends, introduce her to Elizabeth Hamilton, who greatedly admired her. Hannah More praised her in Coelebs in search of a wife (1804). In her short life, she completed a translation of Job, and translated F.G. Klopstock's memoris for publication"--Michael A. Thompson.
