Just quick question about what I feel is a major fail on Frodo's part regarding the Sackville-Baggins and The Gaffer. One would think Frodo being a more then typical Hobbit of the Shire would have thought about what would happen to the Gaffer should he sell his beloved Bag End to the Sackville-Baggins, (especaily to the Sackville-Baggins). I realize, if I put my self in Frodo's shoes that I have a great many things on my mind, The Ring not the least, that I would tend to forget about certain things. That not withstanding, I would think he would have given thought to The Gaffer and made arrangements for him prior to the sale of Bag End. Something to the effect of "with the sale of this property let it be known that the residents of Bagshot Row though not being the owners of said property, shall remain residents of said property until they wish to leave". Kinda think Frodo should have made some kind of stipulation in the sale of Bag End. Just for the protection of The Hobbits on the Row. I have no idea if this was ever brought up to Professor Tolkien, But I would think he would have a answer.
