Hm, that sounds very much like Farmer Giles!

Yes, it's him alright! to the blacksmith and the miller, before setting out

"Honour be blowed! If I get back even the miller's company will be welcome. Still it is some comfort to think that I shall be missing you both for a bit."

Right you are! I love the banter between those men - such a whimsical aspect of the story.

It's such fun to read! (But somehow not half as funny in the translation...)

Thumbs up

Of course! Nice to see you reviving this forgotten thread, Squatter.

(btw; after Oxonmoot I went to see a cousin living near Worcester and I was reminded of Artaxerxes when the train stopped at the station of Pershore )

My pleasure.

Hilary Tolkien used to have a farm with pear orchards near Pershore: it's a nice part of the world.

Let's see what you can make of this one.

Sting Found it!

Chrysophylax indignantly confirming Farmer Giles' guess that the first load of treasure he brings out of his cave isn't "half what you've got"

Btw, this caused me to reread the whole story in my new book with Pauline Baynes' wonderful illustrations (a gift from Esty!)
