Odd, James' not mentioning this about the hobbledehoys

  They clean up 

A minor similarity between the Fellows and the strays in the yard. To the one, he is virtually an official, a tolerant and mer-cifully itinerant master from the remote seat of their empire, looking in on their pleasant satrapy for the day, for whom all pomp and display are a dreary burden. With the other, the equilibrium is magical. The whole constituency of the creative act is rude in its demand, incorruptible at its core, abashing in its acceptance. Fair is fair.
