6. His Evening-Rest and Sleep to Meet

Erestor and Elrond conferred softly in Bilbo's doorway, watching the Hobbit dozing in his chair.

"Small matter that he sleeps all day, and better remembers the Quest of Erebor than yesterday's supper," Erestor murmured sadly. "But walking pains him. He struggles to hold a pen –"  He held out a parchment, Bilbo's confident, flowing tengwar replaced by a spidery scrawl. "Must our doughty little master Ringbearer come to such a slow and painful end?"

Elrond shook his head. "Galadriel, Mithrandir and I are agreed. If he wishes, Bilbo shall take one last journey; to end his days in ease... in Aman."
