15. Cirdan and the Book
"...there is no record of the day when at last Celeborn sought the Grey Havens, and with him went the last living memory of the Elder Days in Middle-earth." (LOTR Appendix)
Cirdan looked up from the book. It was utterly astonishing that Mortals had reconstructed so many of the events of the first three Ages of Ennor. He looked out at the half-built ship in the narrow harbor of the fjord, fortunately one thought inaccessible by the Atani. For good reason the Lingerers now had to hide, and often to move. So the Lord of the Havens reflected that even the greatest loremasters made mistakes, and recalling how even Elven tales changed with time, he suppressed the irritation he had felt at this slight. Celeborn had sailed two Ages ago.
