As Elrond entered and went towards the seat prepared for him, elvish minstrels began to make sweet music Slowly the hall filled, and Frodo looked with delight upon the many fair faces that were gathered together the golden firelight played upon them and shimmered in their hair Suddenly he noticed, not far from the further end of the fire, a small dark figure seated on a stool with his back propped against a pillar Beside him on the ground was a drinking cup and some bread Frodo wondered whether he was ill if people were ever ill in Rivendell, and had been unable to come to the feast His head seemed sunk in sleep on his breast, and a fold of his dark cloak was drawn over his face

Yes, answered Frodo I would rather see him than all the towers and palaces in the world

He looked first for his friends Sam had begged to be allowed to wait on his master, but had been told that for this time he was a guest of honour Frodo could see him now, sitting with Pippin and Merry at the upper end of one of the side tables close to the dais He could see no sign of Strider

Throughout the rest of the meal they talked together, but Frodo listened more than he spoke for the news of the Shire, apart from the Ring, seemed small and far away and unimportant, while Glóin had much to tell of events in the northern regions of Wilderland Frodo learned that Grimbeorn the Old, son of Beorn, was now the lord of many sturdy men, and to their land between the Mountains and Mirkwood neither orc nor wolf dared to go

Thank you very much, said Frodo

Frodo found himself walking with Gandalf This is the Hall of Fire said the wizard Here you will hear many songs and tales if you can keep awake But except on high days it usually stands empty and quiet, and people come here who wish for peace, and thought There is always a fire here, all the year round, but there is little other light

Quite right, answered the dwarf, gathering up the cushions and courteously assisting Frodo back into his seat And I do not ask, for I have already been told that you are the kinsman and adopted heir of our friend Bilbo the renowned Allow me to congratulate you on your recovery

Glóin looked at Frodo and smiled You were very fond of Bilbo were you not? he asked

A shadow passed over Glóins face We do not know, he answered It is largely on account of Balin that I have come to ask the advice of those that dwell in Rivendell But tonight let us speak of merrier things

Glóin looked at him If you have not heard, I think we will not speak yet of that either Master Elrond will summon us all ere long, I believe, and then we shall all hear many things But there is much else that may be told

And what has become of Balin and Ori and óin? asked Frodo

And with that Glóin embarked on a long account of the doings of the Dwarf kingdom He was delighted to have found so polite a listener for Frodo showed no sign of weariness and made no attempt to change the subject, though actually he soon got rather lost among the strange names of people and places that he had never heard of before He was interested, however, to hear that Dáin was still King under the Mountain, and was now old having passed his two hundred and fiftieth year, venerable, and fabulously rich Of the ten companions who had survived the Battle of Five Armies seven were still with him: Dwalin, Glóin, Dori, Nori, Bifur, Bofur, and Bombur Bombur was now so fat that he could not move himself from his couch to his chair at table, and it took six young dwarves to lift him

He guessed that even in Elronds house the matter of the Ring was not one for casual talk and in any case he wished to forget his troubles for a time But I am equally curious, he added, to learn what brings so important a dwarf so far from the Lonely Mountain

The dark figure raised its head and uncovered its face

Next to Frodo on his right sat a dwarf of important appearance, richly dressed His beard, very long and forked, was white, nearly as white as the snow white cloth of his garments He wore a silver belt, and round his neck hung a chain of silver and diamonds Frodo stopped eating to look at him

Now at last the hour has come that you have wished for, Frodo, he said Here is a friend that you have long missed

You have had some very strange adventures, I hear, said Glóin I wonder greatly what brings four hobbits on so long a journey Nothing like it has happened since Bilbo came with us But perhaps I should not inquire too closely, since Elrond and Gandalf do not seem disposed to talk of this?

I think we will not speak of it, at least not yet, said Frodo politely

Glóin began then to talk of the works of his people, telling Frodo about their great labours in Dale and under the Mountain We have done well, he said But in metalwork we cannot rival our fathers, many of whose secrets are lost We make good armour and keen swords, but we cannot again make mail or blade to match those that were made before the dragon came Only in mining and building have we surpassed the old days You should see the waterways of Dale, Frodo, and the fountains, and the pools And the halls and cavernous streets under the earth with arches carved like trees and the terraces and towers upon the Mountains sides Then you would see that we have not been idle

lndeed, said Glóin, if it were not for the Beornings, the passage from Dale to Rivendell would long ago have become impossible They are valiant men and keep open the High Pass and the Ford of Carrock But their tolls are high, he added with a shake of his head and like Beorn of old they are not over fond of dwarves Still, they are trusty, and that is much in these days Nowhere are there any men so friendly to us as the Men of Dale They are good folk, the Bardings The grandson of Bard the Bowman rules them, Brand son of Bain son of Bard He is a strong king, and his realm now reaches far south and east of Esgaroth

Frodo Baggins at your service and your familys, said Frodo correctly, rising in surprise and scattering his cushions Am I right in guessing that you are the Glóin, one of the twelve companions of the great Thorin Oakenshield?
