Griggs, Adolphus

A guest at Mrs. Tappitt’s party, where he paid some attention to Rachel Ray.

"...a man very terrible in his vulgarity,  loud, rampant, conspicuous with villainous jewellery, and odious with the worst abominations of perfumery.... Of all men he was the most unconscious of his own defects. He had once shown some symptoms of admiration for Cherry [Tappitt], by whom he was hated with an intensity of dislike that had amounted to a passion" - Rachel Ray
