'I rode on in fear. I came to Buckland and found it in uproar.... I came to the house at Crickhollow, and it was broken open and empty; but on the threshold there lay a cloak that had been Frodo's. Then for a while hope left me, and I did not wait to gather news, or I might have been comforted; but I rode on the trail of the Riders. It was hard to follow, for it went many ways.... But it seemed to me that one or two had ridden towards Bree; and that way I went....'
