The Hobbit: Are there too many dwarves with Bilbo and Gandalf?

As is written in The Hobbit, there came one day to Bilbo’s entryway the incomparable Wizard, Gandalf the Gray, and thirteen dwarves with him: none other, in fact, than Thorin Oakenshield, a relative of lords, and his twelve sidekicks estranged abroad.

Actually didn’t recollect things well overall, except if he put them down on his task written table like this: Gandalf Tea Wednesday…. Not long before break time, there came a colossal ring on the front-entryway chime, and afterward, he recalled! He hurried and put on the pot, and put out another cup and saucer and an additional cake or two, and rushed to the entryway.

‘I am so sorry to keep you pausing!’ he was going to state when he saw that it was not Gandalf by any stretch of the imagination. It was a dwarf person with a blue whiskers tucked into a brilliant belt and extremely splendid eyes under his dim green hood. He was called Dawlin.


After some time, there came another significantly stronger ring at the bell. Be that as it may, be Gandalf, but it was not. Rather there was an extremely old-looking dwarf person on the progression with a white whiskers and a red hood; and he excessively jumped inside when the entryway was open, similarly as though he had been welcomed. He was called Balin.

It was not the right comment, yet they have started to show up had bothered Bilbo seriously. He loved guests, yet he jumped at the chance to know them before they showed up at his doorstep.

At the point when he got back Balin and Dwalin were talking at the table like old companions (truly they were siblings). Bilbo plumped down the brew and the cake before them, at the same time the bell rang once more, and afterward another ring…

 It was two more dwarves, and both of them conveyed a pack of devices and a spade. Both of them were called Kili and Fili.

While four dwarves lounged around the table and discussed different things his ringer rang once more. This time, the number was five; Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin, and Gloin were their names and soon two purple hoods, a dim hood, an earthy colored hood, and a white hood were holding tight the pegs, and off they walked with their wide hands stuck in their gold and silver belts to join the others.

A big container of espresso had recently been set on the table. At the mean — a boisterous knock on the door again. More dwarves, four more! There was more- it was Gandalf. He had made a significant imprint on the wonderful entryway; he had likewise, coincidentally, taken out the mystery mark that he had put there the morning prior.

‘Carefully! Let me present Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and particularly Thorin!’, said Gandalf. At that point they hung up two yellow hoods and a light green one; furthermore a sky-blue one with a long silver tuft. This last had a place with Thorin, a gigantically significant midget, in actuality no other than the incomparable Thorin Oakenshield himself. Thorin without a doubt was extremely haughty, and said nothing regarding administration; yet helpless Mr. Bilbo Baggins said he was sorry so often, that finally, he quit glaring.

Taking a gander at the line of thirteen hoods, Gandalf said, ‘presently we are on the whole here!’— The best separable gathering hoods — and his own cap holding tight the pegs. Gandalf then proposed in this way, ‘a serious joyful social occasion! I trust there is something left for the mavericks to eat and drink!’

Gandalf sat at the top of the gathering with the thirteen, dwarves all round: and Bilbo sat on a stool at the fireside. He was tending to act as though this was all totally standard and not at all an experience. After that, the dwarves ate, drink, talk and time jumped on.
