I have an mp3 recording of JRRT reading a passage from "Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbits." I have checked it though, and unfortunately the word 'were' does not appear in it. It does, however, have him doing the voices for both Sam and Gollum. Anyways, if anyone is interested in it, send me an email and I can forward it over to you. ~Matt Trinsic
