Such a fortunate encounter for the Hobbits occurs just as a Black Rider approaches, when the sound of the Elves' voices drove it away. The three Hobbits are able to enjoy the hospitality and protection of the Elves that night within a true hall of woods.
|Discussing the possible fate of the three Hobbits.|
It doesn't take a great leap of imagination to believe that this may very well be the same Elf camp where the traveling Elves hosted Frodo, Sam, and Pippin. Maybe Orthir was even among the party on that night. As for the Elf in charge that night, the noble Gildor Inglorion, we are fortunate to cross paths with him again in the North Downs, inside the library of Lin Giliath. You will meet him personally when you run Chapter 5 of Volume 1, Book 3.
It is Gildor Inglorion who gives us another of the famous lines from the Lord of the Rings: "Do not meddle in the affairs of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."
