My thought is still that Amdír met Merry briefly in the Houses of Healing--"met" being a somewhat grand way of putting it, perhaps. However, since he knew him as "Master Meriadoc of King Theoden's household" I doubt he would have realised that "Mary the Elf" was supposed to be one and the same character until they met Samwise.

Thus, I agree it's quite plausible, so on the assumption that Amdír not mentioning it has to do with never putting the two together and his general quietness of character, then I'm fine with it.

I can probably have a post up for my fine carpenter tomorrow morning (my time), but in the event I don't, it will take a couple days, as Rune is visiting and school will eat me. In the event I don't post in the next 16 hours or so, feel free to go ahead without me.
