It was a bit odd talking to Samwise after the discussion my beloved and I had prior to the meeting. A'maelamin did much to set my heart at ease, yet after all that, who should come by to have a word with Iorhael's Writer but the one my beloved thought he'd never hear from again! I am trying my best not to worry.
Speaking of Iorhael's Writer, I met a friend of his who was quite charming. And once again I had a chat with my mun's friend the lovely Ms. Abandonada. She is such a fine judge of character that it just adds to the pleasure of speaking with her.
My poor Iorhael--so many are trying to have his ear before the council begins! It will be a wonder if we ever start the meeting proper, I suppose.
