Westerly Wizard has just left Hobbiton.

Gandalf, Elrond, and Galadriel would have been considered to be forsaking Middle-earth. Galadriel had been banned, she could not have returned at the time--her ban was only lifted with the refusal of the One Ring and her help of the Ringbearer. Gandalf had been sent from the West to aid Middle-earth. His mission hardly would have been fulfilled if he had just given up and gone back into the West: he perhaps would not have been welcomed back (and i don't think I need that perhaps).
"He was sent by a mere prudent plan of the angelic Valar or governors; but Authority had taken up this plan and enlarged it, at the moment of its failure."
