Since Turin and Turin Turambar were taken, I decided on Durin VII.
And on the letters, I think he decided that since the book was not really about true evil, and more on just the corruption of men, that it was not really worth writing.
The quote virumor was refering to is here:

"As for the Entwives: I do not know. I have written nothing beyond the first few years of the Fourth Age. (Except the beginning of a tale supposed to refer to the end of the reign of Eldaron about 100 years after the death of Aragorn. Then I of course discovered that the King's Peace would contain no tales worth recounting; and his wars would have little interest after the overthrow of Sauron; but that almost certainly a restlessness would appear about then, owing to the (it seems) inevitable boredom of Men with the good: there would be secret societies practising dark cults, and 'orc-cults' among adolescents.) But I think in Vol. II pp. 80-811 it is plain that there would be for Ents no re-union in 'history' but Ents and their wives being rational creatures would find some 'earthly paradise' until the end of this world: beyond which the wisdom neither of Elves nor Ents could see. Though maybe they shared the hope of Aragorn that they were 'not bound for ever to the circles of the world and beyond them is more than memory.'...."
I've heard that someone in this whole thing said which age we're in?In either of the books Morgoth's ring or the peoples of Middle-Earth that the sixth age began in 1789, the year of the french revolution. So we can neatly settle that we are in the Sixth age. I wonder where did the Moriquendi,Dwarves,Ents and Hobbits went. I hope I'll see one
The sixth Age ended with World war 2. We are now in the seventh (your not far out though).
Thankyou for letting me know that. Tongue Smilie
That's quite interesting LoA, I'm not doubting you but can you give a quote which proves that true please? I'd like to find and read about it myself, and I can't find it at the moment Orc Smiling Smilie
