General Miller, the Collector, is the oldest inhabitant, a man who maintained a stellar career in the military but who has chosen to work in the Custom House for the remainder of his years. General Miller was very conservative. He was a man of ritual and habit. He was reluctant to entertain change of any kind even when change might serve for the better.
