Did Tolkien Ever Draw an Ent or Huron?

I was just wondering if he ever drew a picture or sketch of how he visualized the ents.

The Common Tongue and Latin

I am not a student of Latin, but is there any similarity to the "common tongue" used in LOTR and Latin in the medieval west?

Relics in Middel-Earth

So I was thinking about what kind of relics do we see in middle-earth. Objects that are held in high honor and perhaps even contain powers or inspire those who hold them or are near them. Perhaps the...

Very good and thank you. Question, so the King of Arnor rightly also is king of Gondor? but the king or steward of gondor not the rightful king of Arnor had it survived.

Please Help me Understand Gondor Stewardship and Kingship

What is the difference between a steward and a king in authority? Why did Aragorn wait to become king and why did not earlier ancestors take the crown in Gondor.

Agreed

That was my original response and idea. Two separate accounts of flitting of smaller dwarves and elves. But without the text quoted [yet] I cant be sure what is going on.
