Whoops, stuck in [Draft]:
Truly, though, of course, I was referring to the elves sailing west to
the Undying Lands...
Obviously, a one way trip.
If it's early 19c, could be emigrating to the new world, as well. Heck
of a lot of folk went to the Americas, and were never heard from again.
Even more so in the 18c.
[I'd have thought if 'going west' meant heading to Oz, that should be
seen as a good thing. Except to indigents, of course...]
