"...a little ring, the least of rings..." [In reply to] Can't Post

And then his fell voice was lowered, and he would have sweetened it if he could. “As a small token only of your friendship Sauron asks this,” he said: “that you should find this thief,” such was his word, “and get from him, willing or no, a little ring, the least of rings, that once he stole. It is but a trifle that Sauron fancies, and an earnest of your good will.
(LotR II.2)

I think Tolkien's villain-speak is his weakest, or rather least-convincing, mode. This is the worst of a bad lot.
