Ummmm... I think, maybe, that Mr Wolfe does not _intend_ us to have 
the reaction to (Hoof'n'Hide's) Silk|Horn* that we had to Horn's Silk. 

* Nice formulation, William!

On the other hand, it's interesting how effective the Narr _is_ in
dealing with problems in Gaon, in Soldo/Blanko, and in Dorp, 
apparently by "assuming the virtue," acting to the best of his 
ability as he believed Silk would act. (I imagine a future 
generation of Bluvians wearing "WWSD?" buttons.)
