   No dwarves were injured between Mirkwood and Laketown A dwarf gets shot by an orc arrow.
   On arrival in Laketown and after being released from the barrels by Bilbo, the dwarves publicly announce themselves to the city Master and crowd. The dwarves slink around town aided by Bard, the barge driver.
