Wow! You miss four words and it really changes the meaning. I checked and 
you're right. So I checked my old copy and, yep, it had a bad printing of 
the end of that line. arrg! This re-arranges the furniture a bit. And a 
little chaos does not a convincing argument make.
You're right that this corrected text does mean that Horn does not 
explicitly recall a past as a greenbuck.  The most annoying thing is that I 
will have to rewrite something that nicely put it all together in a bow. 
Those stiff hairs definitely recall a deer hide for me. And I'd say there's 
still pretty solid evidence that the Raja is a Neighbor with Horn's and 
Silk's psyche. Yet, this is going to need buttressing, which I be able to do 
with out a re-reading.
