Glorfindel of Imladris learns that Gandalf, Thorin, and Bilbo were carrying swords from Gondolin.
"Is what I hear true?"
Elrond laid his quill down and looked more closely at the golden-haired elf-lord sitting opposite him. "What did you hear?"
Glorfindel tapped his fingers impatiently on the table. "Erestor tells me the dwarves bore swords from Gondolin."
"Aye. Their leader Thorin, and the wizard Gandalf." Elrond picked his words carefully.
"Why did you not tell me?"
True, Glorfindel was among the last of Gondolin in Middle-earth; Elrond should have told him, but time had been short.
"Such a treasure...." Glorfindel's tone was wistful. "I would have seen Gondolin again with my own eyes."
