'What am I to do? I should have delivered that letter three days past! I couldn't say if your finding it was a blessing or a curse! Either way, I fear my goose is cooked.

'Oh, I cannot bear to even look at it. Will you?'

Background

Landath apprehensively peers at the letter.
'Oh, by the Whit Tree, there is hope. But we can't deliver it with a broiken seal. Would you - could you?'
Landarh hesitates.
'If it is not too much to ask, do you thin you might go into the Clothiers' Fellow-hall, find Master Badbir's things, and reseal the letter with them?'

The letter should be delivered to a smith named Rhofin. Find Master Aglarang and ask him where Rhofin can be found.

Landath says, I am asked to bear many messages up to this tier. In the upper tiers, they more often use errand-riders than boys like me.
Landath says,' Master Aglarang knows me, but mostly only as 'Boy.
Master Aglarang: 'A message for Rhofin, you say? I saw him this morning, but that wo't do you much good. Given the hour, he might be at the Smiths' Market, or maybe the Merry Swan, or even out upon the Court of Eärnil, despite these darkening skies.

The Forges of Cirion are in the northern stretch of the Third Circle. If you should get separated from Landath, use Bergil's whistle to call him back.

Rhofin: 'Well, hello there, <name> and young master! What is this here?'
He takes the letter and furrows his brow as he reads it.
'A buckle for Lord Forlong's armour? Broke it putting it on, did he? Ah ha ha ha! And as he's a lord, it must be a fine-filigreed buckle, musm't it? Rhofin's the man for such a job. Now you'll have to give me a moment, bu I promise, it won't take long.'
