After Gandalf's fears were confirmed, he returned to the Shire in [[12 April]] {{TA|3018}} and told to Frodo about the [[Rings of Power]], and proved to him that Bilbo's was the ancient [[One Ring]] which the Dark Power of [[Mordor]] is looking, and Frodo should leave as soon as possible. Gandalf also told Frodo that he gathered this information from the creature Gollum, to which Frodo exclaimed that he should have been killed. Gandalf speculated that perhaps Gollum would have a part to play before the end, and in any case, it was not for them to decide who should live and who should die.<ref>{{FR|Shadow}}</ref>

After Gandalf's fears were confirmed, he returned to the Shire and advised Frodo to leave as soon as possible, promising to return before a farewell party on Bilbo's birthday in autumn of that year ({{TA|3018|n}}), and to escort him to Rivendell. Gandalf also told Frodo about the creature Gollum, to which Frodo exclaimed that he should have been killed. Gandalf speculated that perhaps Gollum would have a part to play before the end, and in any case, it was not for them to decide who should live and who should die.
  
Gandalf suggested that he should take the Ring to [[Rivendell]] soon, and Frodo decided to leave on his next birthday, pretending to be moving to [[Buckland]], to which Gandalf agreed. He stayed in the Shire for over two months,<ref name=three>{{FR|Three}}</ref> during which, on [[1 May]] he went to [[Sarn Ford]] and met again Aragorn, informing him of Frodo's plans.<ref>{{FR|Strider}}</ref> He had a sense of foreboding and heard [[Sauron's attack on Osgiliath|disturbing news about war]] in [[Gondor]] and a [[Black Shadow]].<ref name=council/> He decided to leave for the South and left Frodo, promising to return for his birthday-farewell party in autumn, so that they would go to Rivendell together.<ref name=three/>

While in the Shire, he had a sense of foreboding and in the aftermath of [[Sauron's attack on Osgiliath]] he heard disturbing news about war in [[Gondor]] and a [[Black Shadow]]. He started wandering around [[Eriador]] hearing news from the refugees who had a fear they couldnot speak about, until he met [[Radagast]] who brought a message of [[Saruman]] that he must seek him at once; and a warning that the [[Ringwraiths]] are looking for the Shire.<ref name=council/> He went to [[the Prancing Pony]] at [[Bree]]. Believing that he would not be able to return to Frodo in time, he wrote [[Gandalf's letter|a letter]], urging him to move as soon as possible for Rivendell, and seek someone "Strider" whose real name is Aragorn, with a [[The Riddle of Strider|riddle]] to identify him; Gandalf would then try to catch up with them when available. He also instructed [[Barliman Butterbur]] to send the letter to [[Hobbiton]] and to expect a Mr. [[Baggins]] that will come under the name of "[[Mr. Underhill]]". He left the inn, but Barliman would forget to send the letter.<ref>{{FR|Strider}}</ref>
