Presentation to Viscountess Dungannon, in Victoria Hall, Belfast, [Ireland] - from a photograph by Glyde, of Belfast, 1856. '...a very gratifying demonstration of feeling, by the tenantry of Lord Dungannon's Irish estates, presenting an admirable portrait of his Lordship to the noble Viscountess,...a full-length likeness...represented standing in the midst of wild mountain scenery, and wrapped in a cloak; and it is due to Mr. Catterson Smith, the painter of the portrait, to say that the whole large assembly...instantly recognised the familiar characteristics of the noble Viscount. [The Viscountess addressed the] '...tenantry, with their female relatives, numbering eight hundred:...If I ever felt proud of the land of my birth, it is on the present occasion, when once more treading my native soil, and receiving from a body of Irish tenantry this portrait so faithfully executed by an Irish artist (Cheers). From "Illustrated London News", 1856.
