Tombe, Mr

Mr. Grey’s lawyer, who arranged to supply George Vavasor with money from Mr. Grey’s account, rather than from Alice Vavasor’s.

"Mr. Tombe was a remarkable man in his way. He wore powder to his hair - was very polite in his bearing - was somewhat asthmatic, and wheezed in his talking, - and was, moreover, the most obedient of men, though it was said of him that he managed the whole income of the Ely Chapter just as he pleased" - Can You Forgive Her?
