Runciman, Mr

The landlord of the Bush Inn at Dillsborough.

"He was a hale, good-looking man about fifty, with black hair, now turning grey at the edges, and a clean-shorn chin.... He was a masterful, but a pleasant man, very civil to customers and to his friends generally while they took him the right way; but one who could he a Tartar if he were offended. He was a temperate man in the main; but on Saturday nights he would become jovial, and sometimes a little quarrelsome" - The American Senator.
