Character description

1.) (Fictitious character) In the novel Cecilia by Frances Burney, Mr Briggs is one of the three guardians of appointed by the Dean for Cecilia. He is so frugal that one suspects a mental illness. It was Cecilia's plan to move in with him after she left the Harrels, but she found his house unlivable. Mr. Monckton argued that it would be improper for her to live with the Delviles because of Mortimer's presence, but Brigg's house overcame her scruples.
