    Dear hobbits,

    thank you again for the grand offer to join your ranks. To make it all correct, let me properly introduce myself.

    My name is Freoda Hornwood, a woodworker and hobby cartographer. I came to you from Bree, where my family has lived for several generations. My father, Filibert Hornwood, is a woodworker too, my mother Camelia Hornwood, né Brockhouse, is a cook. I have also an older sister Donamira, already married to Rogo Tunnelly and a younger brother Alaric.

    I was born on the 14th day of Frery according to the Bree calendar, in Shire you call this month Afteryule, 28 years ago. It was a hard winter, as my father always mentions. I spent in Bree the next 28 years among the Bree hobbits and also the Big folk. I have been always curious what lies beneath the borders of Bree land, maybe therefore I grew interested in old documents, family trees and especially maps. As a tradition in our family, each woodworker gathers the wood by him- or herself. So I spend much time outside and use this time not only for gathering wood, but also for drawing maps. I mentioned this before, but my biggest goal is to make a grand map. To achieve this, I am prepared to travel to distant lands and maybe also face some adventures, even if unlikely for a hobbit.

    Short after my 28th birthday I decided to leave Bree and settled down in Shire. Here I continue my work, both woodworking and map making. In my free time I enjoy playing harp and occasionally flute. I love beer and hate when it is waterish. I like meeting people, regarding race, but hate unfriendly or rude ones. Before I met you, my only friend in Shire was a good friend of our family, master Darstein, a dwarven cook, who currently lives in Needlehole and supplies me with food. He knows how bad I am at cooking and that I would set my burrow on fire while preparing something more complicated that boiled eggs or tea. You do not need to worry, if you come for a visit, I will have some cakes baked by master Darstein, not by me. Currently I live in Oldfurlong.

    I am looking forward to meet you all.

    With regards
    Freoda Hornwood

    But, a dwarven cook in Needlehole? Dear me, auntie Iris did not tell me about that!
