Patience is a Virtue

At the Houses, Elf and Dwarf enquire after the Hobbits. The doorward calls one Mistress Ioreth:

"...aye, they're up and about, my lords, though a miracle it is to be sure, when you think of such little folk enduring such perils - they said the one who's wounded slew a great black king of Mordor itself! we thought he'd not last the night, he and the fair Princess of Rohan, pale and fading as they were under that terrible Shadow..."

Gimli nearly explodes; but patient before the torrent of words, Legolas eventually enquires:  "And where, madam, might they now be found...?"
