Summary: 

At the point where Pat Stamper's name gets mentioned by Jody Varner, the story-teller halts the forward movement of the narrative to put Pap's misadventure in a larger context. He develops the motivations behind the story, including Pap's reasons for needing to redeem himself as a trader by besting Stamper, and anticipates its subsequent events. Speaking to his listeners as "you," he even says that the rest of the story "don't even hardly need to be told," except to make its moral explicit (123).
