Was there ever a less  worthy king? Fengel instructed my people far too well in his ways and they took his lessons to heart. They’ve  learned to be covetous, suspicious and more concerned  for gold then for honour. They believe provoking useless duels and killing those who should be their allies will  garner them glory.Alas for the Rohirrim.It may take my lifetime, but I will set it aright, I will  balance the scales. I will remind the Eorlingas who they are meant to be and my son, in turn, will show them. Many think it ill that we favour Sindarin and Westron in Meduseld, and perhaps there is some truth in that charge, but Théoden already speaks the tongue of his forefathers better than I and none will question him when he comes into his own.I confess on my darkest days, that my thoughts turn ever to the White City. I miss gazing out of the tower  of your namesake in the early morning, watching the Anduin turn to silver fire as the dawn kissed her. Morwen hides it well, but she longs for the harps of her  homeland, not the hard songs of mine.Enough of this, Rohan needs me. I shall not fail the  Riddermark.Now as to my council, you do well to be concerned, I think, for the Corsairs have ever been restive in the late spring. Doubtless, you remember their attack on Linhir in 2942, even before the Dark Lord made his return  known. No, as I have said before, you did well to send  forth your call for aid. There are still stout hearts in this world of ours and much that is worth fighting for. There are several warriors within my court that I will commend to you. One though, I’ll not give up, not yet at least. I suspect he is of your kin, for he is tall and stern, with grey eyes that falter not. He said he lost  his name on the road south, so my people call him the Eagle . His conduct is nothing short of exemplary, a soul of honour in these dark times, an example to help the Eorlingas remember who they are… Excerpt of a letter from Thengel King, Lord of the Mark to Ecthelion II, the Steward of Gondor.
