Silk was a kid fresh out of the seminary. He was a novice as an augur, hadn't had time to inculcate the poor-as-a-church-mouse stereotypical appetite of same. His eating habits must date from childhood, about which we are told very little. Silk's abstemiousness is, to some degree, an affectation. When his mind is otherwise engaged he can--and does--eat normally, as at Inclito's house. (IGJ, 71) -Roy --
