I have another son which with my husband, constitutes the whole of my family. The former is a youth of stout moral caracter (sic), a good scholar, and excellent disposition and should feel highly honoured by your allowing me to introduce him to your notice. I could have had letters from several persons of high Credit in England but did not think it necessary to trouble you with them. I was at Hawkstone for a fortnight previous to my leaving England and have the pleasure to say Sir John Hill, Lord Hill and the whole family were well.

Her two sons also participated in the concerts, both as committee members and performers, John as a tenor (viola) player in the orchestra, and George as a vocalist in several comic songs.

     The Dictionary of Sydney states: Mrs John Paul, by Graeme Skinner, 2008
The existence of the woman who was quite possibly Sydney's first recorded composer is attested to in The Sydney Gazette for 1 March 1836
. Reporting on a concert by the newly arrived Irish musical virtuoso William Vincent Wallace, the Gazette noted that Wallace concluded his program by inviting members of the audience to submit tunes, one of which he selected and added 'some extemporaneous variations' of his own. According to the Gazette, the item in question was the song 'Currency Lasses (as composed by our talented towns lady, Mrs John Paul senior).' [1]
One version of the words of the song, printed in 1832, includes the following chorus: [2]
The Currency Lads can fill up their glasses
And drink to the health of the Currency Lasses
The Lass I adore; the one for me
Is the lass of the Female Factory
.
Whether these were the words of Mrs Paul's song is not known. Nor is there any known record of the tune ascribed to her, though some vestige of it may survive in the setting published by Isaac Nathan in London in 1846. Edward Geoghegan was also author and possibly composer of the musical play or operetta The Currency Lass, or My Native Girl (he himself later described it as an 'original 2 act opera'), first performed at the Royal Victoria Theatre, Sydney on 27 May 1844.
