    Excellent! Excellent! They dined upon mince and slices of quince, Which they ate with a runcible spoon.

    I thought I’d mention that there is a furthar belief of Edward Leah’s naming of the Runcible spoon, it was in fact a large ladle type spoon with holes and the word runcible was derived from Run simple the fact that liquid simply ranm away from the solid when scooped up. However, the nonsense that came out of Leah, suggests that it was purely invented and had no bearing on anything. The run simple theory has been passed down within my family for 70 odd years and I’ve not heard a better explanation in all that time.
    Do with it as you will, but if you ever come up with something definnitive, please keep me informed.
