Robinson Henry Cbabb
Robinson, Henry Cbabb (1775-1867), author of one of the most interesting volumes of reminiscences ever published, was born at Bury St. Edmunds, was educated at Devizes, and entered a lawyer's office. He became Times correspondent in Germany and Spain, and in the former country made the acquaintance of Goethe, Schiller, and other great men. He was called to the bar in 1813, and retired from practice in 1828. He moved in the best literary society in England, and knew Coleridge, Lamb, De Quincey, Blake, Moore, Wordsworth, Shelley, Hazlitt, and many others, of whom he has left very valuable descriptions in his Diary, Reminiscences, and Correspondence.
