Annunfuiniel has just left Hobbiton.

Some information about the etymology of the word 'athelas' is found here.
Unpublished Manuscripts page informs us that this is the "Etymology of the word athelas, reported on the usenets by William Cloud Hicklin based on information sent to him in a letter from Christopher Tolkien. One of these messages was reprinted in Tyalie Tyelellieva, No. 15:31."
Despair is only for those
who see the end beyond all doubt.
