"The Dickensonian" vol.25 p.66.Mr W.H.Huffam of Norwich writes: It may interest you to know that I possess the original portrait you give of my great grandfather, Christopher Huffam. It was photographed for publication about 30 years ago,whehen I resided in Manchester. It is an oil painting by Sir Thomas Lawrence,and my grandfather, Solomon Huffam, son of Christopher Huffam then living in London, used to tell me with pride that it cost 100 pound to paint and that his father was saiid to be one of the handsomest men in London, and that he was a Gentleman in waiting to King William IV, an honour given him in recognition of his work in connection with the war in France. He fitted out a Privateer at his own expense and she did valuable service. I came into possession of the portrait on the death of my Grandfather together with a quantity of old legal documents referring to property in Limehouse."
