Well, yes, I'm sure we will...but we're analyzing a Wolfe book where he
plays by rules of his own. And a particular point in made re "Marsch's"
eyes--they are mentioned as a curiosity on each of his appearances in 5HC.
And, in VRT, the diarist (Marsch, for argument) makes a point of the boy's
eyes, and the boy, remembering, makes a point of his mother's eyes.  I'd say
this qualifies as a bona fide Wolfe clue, and a hindrance to the Sarge's
