Raymond, George

HCR diary 1.8.1824 of barristers on Norfolk circuit with Robinson "Raymond has the manners of a gay coxcomb with a touch of affected humour - he is said to be a damned dramatist - he is a punster and versifier - he will be an amusing companion at all events and may be a pleasant value. Rough says he has dress and effeminate manner of a man addicted to bad practices"
                   9.9.1827 dined with Raymond and parents at Brighton "His mother a steady respectable old lady - the father not at the table - laid up by gout. He is also a quiet old citizen with the manners of a retired tradesman who has almost forgotten he was once in business - I shouls suppose a worthy man - I dare say they look up to their son"
