It is Rumil, I believed he was known as the father of the written letters, only to be bettered by Fëanor... Your turn Thooorin...

Since Thorin hasn't replied (and I'm an impatient person) I'll give a question.

What reason did Frodo give as to why he was traveling abroad?

He told them he was moving to Crickhollow, rather than travelling abroad. Though to the hobbits around the Ivy Bush Tavern, Crickhollow and Buckland were a far cry from Hobbiton; many of them had never been so far from home.

Very true Grondmaster, but I did not err when I said abroad, nor did I say he was talking to hobbits. Try again, but good guess.

Ah, it must have been in Bree: Mr. Underhill said he was writing a book about the history of hobbits living in the hinterlands or outlands or outside the Shire. I can't remember his exact words. He was told to talk to the hobbits of Staddle.

Very good, that is what I was looking for. Also, I seem to recall him saying something about geography.

That would be all of them except Valandil: Elendur, Aratan, and Ciryon.

What brief memory about his adventure did Bilbo bore his guests with at his 111th birthday party?
(Thank you very much)
