"I don't know who raised this fellow, if anybody, but they must not've raised him right or he'd know you can't have the whole table. It don't work that way. You get your plateful and that's that."

That line is so adorable! Plain Hobbit sense, indeed. ;)

Poor Frodo! :(

I have to say this is a very successful experiment. *grin* I could just picture Sam sitting at a table with pen and inkpot and paper, and concentrating very hard to get it all down. I loved the bit about having someone trustworthy reading it out to Gaffer instead of the a gossip!

Lovely piece of work.

This is a very interesting experiment. I think that you caught Samwise's vocab just right. I look forward to reading more from you.

This was... wow. It was wonderful. You captured Sam's character perfectly and this is just how he'd write a letter to his Gaffer. It's perfect! You know what, I think you found an anciant document that was the actual latter from Sam to his father and you just typed it up, because it's wonderful! The Valar have truly blessed you.

Blessed Sam Gamgee, wanting to let his father know what happened as quickly and as thoroughly as possible, even the bits he barely understands himself! Love the corrections for spelling and usage. And I see "Faramir" won out! Heh!
