Actually I think I know it but my version has some extra words but everything else fits perfectly.

“But as for me, my heart is with the Sea, and I will dwell by the grey shores, guarding the Havens until the last ship sails. Then I shall await thee.”

Cirdan giving Gandalf the ring.

Wow, incredible! How did you find that out with only one letter? Kudos!!

In my book (HarperCollins, ed.1994) Cirdan says: "But as for me, my heart is with the Sea, and I will dwell by the grey shores until the last ship sails. I will await you."

I wonder that there are such differences... I guess your version is the original one, because an editor would probably not add more text or change "you" to "thee"..

The first word ended in t which made it most likely But or Put or out, but the third word not being “the” meant unlikely to be a location preposition EG “out of the” “put in the”.

The single letter later was either “I” or “A” I assumed “I” which would make the fourth word “me” to setting up the subject I.

And the phrase that fit best was “But as for me”

A far simpler explanation I made a bunch of assumptions and got lucky.

Aha! That's from The Hobbit:

(I was a bit irritated by the fact that the T in "with" was missing...)

I really really want to take this down with no letters. “, **,” is the key. I’ve plugged in every two letter word that makes sense between two commas but can’t find anything.

Fine I’ll try the old fashioned way.

Ah it was close enough. I like how you didn't post the actual quote for 10 hours.

TWO semicolons in this one. Hm.

Let's mix things up a little and start with a W.
