The Lord of the Rings, Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

'[There] was a great inrush of those, burárum..., those vermin of orcs; and they came over the River and down from the North and all round the wood of Laurelindórenan....'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 5, Many Partings

On into the shadow [the Rohirrim] rode.... And as they rode rumour came of war in the North. Lone men, riding wild, brought word of foes assailing their east-borders, of orc-hosts marching in the Wold of Rohan.

'Ride on! Ride on!' cried Éomer. 'Too late now to turn aside. The fens of Entwash must guard our flank. Haste now we need. Ride on!'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 3, The Muster of Rohan
