No, as I say, quite a bit earlier. When I say "on the right track" I mean it is said about a character who (to me at least) has a similar feeling to Túrin. But not necessarily the same race as he is.

ETA: Here is the quote again to bring on to this page:

"Don't hurry! More than you know. Give him peace."

If this is correct, then it got drastically shortened:

Aulë to Tulkas and the others present.

Yup, that's it. And yes it was shortened pretty good. Particularly the second sentence. Well done!

I thought this would be easy, because it had a proper name in it. But then Translationparty replaced the name with "he" at the last minute:

If you need another hint...

Spoiler: show
Sauron is no longer a concern at this point.
