Yesterday I was important enough, I suppose. I was Master of Bag End and the Hill, and the Baggins.
But today I am far more than that, now my lad has come home with me. Now I’m the guardian to the finest Hobbit the Shire has ever produced. (Although I suspect all parents tend to think that of their young ones.)
But, somehow, I know that I have the right of it! Now, to see him properly prepared to take on that role fully!
You will make the whole of Middle Earth better for having lived in it, Frodo Baggins!
