“Oh, yes, Sam has two brothers as well as his three sisters. Hamson and Halfred are closer to my age, so they’re off doing their apprenticeships, up in the Northfarthing. Hamson is a journeyman roper, and a very good one by report; and Half is learning to run a nursery. He’s sent us some lovely trees for Bag End’s orchard in the past few years.”
Sam smiled as he heard his Master’s praise for his brothers. Of course, he dreamed of having three brothers rather than just two, and it was Frodo Baggins who he thought of as the third.
