Don (referring to himself, as pleases him, in the third person) replies,

I think you mean Palaemon rather than Malrubius.  I don't think Wolfe 
forgot to have Severian mention the slave to Palaemon.  I always took 
it that Severian took it upon himself to answer for his master and that 
was the end of it.  Of course I also think Severian and Palaemon are 
essentially the same person so take my opinion for what it's worth to
