|Walkthrough & Notes|
'I look around and I do not see the preparations for which I asked, <name>. I will speak with Reeve Fastred to learn why he delays, but let us try something else first.
'It is said that you catch more horse-flies with honey-cakes than you do with lamp tallow. Introduce yourself to Grimstan, one of Fastred's personal guards, and ask him why the people have not begun to move where it is safe. Grimstan knows me, and the answer he would give to me might be different than the one he gives to you. I want to know what is really going on in Snowbourn, and you are a more sure path to that answer.'
Éomer has come to Snowbourn to see if Reeve Fastred has complied with his command to begin preparations to move his people across the Entwash where they can be better defended.
