 “Uncle Elrond?”

The Peredhel turned to regard the dark-haired young man. At sixty-four, this prince of Arnor still had the gift of Elros’ longevity upon him and bore the wearing of years but lightly. “Arantar? What may I do for you?”

“Is there any way I can help Father?”

So, Elrond had not been the sole witness to Eldacar’s grief.

“Give him this, Nephew,” Elrond decided, withdrawing a small, leather-bound book, locked fast, from the pocket of his robes, and the key that went with it. Elrond passed them to Arantar with reverence.

“Whose was this?” Arantar wondered.

“My father's.”
