Bestowal dialogue

'We are nearly ready to lock up the hall, but it would be most helpful if someone could take a look around the upper floors and the rafters before we leave.

'You look like you're fond of stairs. Why don't you climb up and have a look around?'

Dear Father:

'Dear Father,
The battle at the Fords goes badly, and we have lost many men. The forces of Isengard have forced an opening, and our next stand may well be our last. I write to implore you to look to our defences, and to raise all the might of Rohan. I know that we have had our disagreements of late, but father...these may be the last words I ever say to you:
I say to you, Wormtongue's counsel is not right. The Fords are falling. Saruman is attacking, and Rohan is in great peril.

Éowyn: 'A letter to my uncle from Théodred! Let me see.'

Éowyn reads the letter with interest.
'Wormtongue...he must have hidden this when it arrived. A plea such as this would have opened my uncle's eyes. It is from his son on the eve of the battle that took his life...
'Gríma must have known that such a message would have stirred the king from his spell. He must have been keeping it for a later time, as suited his needs.'
