Is everyone against Frodo? No. Absolutely not, but he can’t stop thinking that they are.
Butterbur speaks amiably to Frodo after all the hobbits, men, and dwarves have left, but he is certainly a little displeased with Frodo’s antics. Keep in mind, Frodo did break some mugs. Butterbur says that people in Bree tend to be suspicious of anything out of the ordinary, although he doesn’t doubt that his inn will be full again tomorrow with everyone discussing the strange doings of Frodo. Before Frodo goes up to bed, Butterbur tells him that he would like to talk to him privately, just like Aragorn had said. Frodo heads to his room with a bad taste in his mouth, awaiting the impending discussions with Aragorn and Butterbur.
Yes, let’s not forget that Frodo has a meeting later to talk with Aragorn! I’m sure that conversation will be much more important than whatever Butterbur has to say.
In the meantime, Frodo has ordered their ponies to be ready by 8am tomorrow morning. The plan is to set off early and make it as far as they can. I’m not sure what the typical travel time is from Bree to Rivendell, but don’t forget that that’s where Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin are heading.
Because…that’s totally what’s going to happen. I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you if you didn’t know!
And that’s the end of Chapter 9! Double digits, folks, double digits.
“He began to suspect even old Butterbur’s fat face of concealing dark designs.”
