The Lord of the Rings, Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age
'... Ringló we crossed; and on the third day we came to Linhir above the mouth of Gilrain. And there men of Lamedon contested the fords with fell folk.... But defenders and foes alike... fled when we came.... Only Angbor, Lord of Lamedon, had the heart to abide us; and Aragorn bade him gather his folk and come behind, if they dared, when the Grey Host had passed.
'"At Pelargir the Heir of Isildur will have need of you," he said.
'Thus we crossed over Gilrain, driving the allies of Mordor in rout before us; and then we rested a while.'
