Montague, Paul

A friend and distant relative of Roger Carbury. He invested his small fortune in a venture in San Francisco, but, not liking the country, returned to England. He won the love of Henrietta Carbury, whom Roger wished to marry. Becoming involved with Augustus Melmotte in his promotion schemes, he vainly tried to warn his fellow directors of the unsoundness of the business, and extricated himself before the crash.
