|J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit CED|
The kings of Wood-elves, Lake-men, and Dwarves argue over the treasure under the mountain. (Side 2, 32:49).
"'I am Bard and by my hand the dragon was slain and your treasure delivered.|
Is that not a matter that concerns you? Moreover I am by right descent the heir of
Girion of Dale, and in your hoard is mingled much of the wealth of his halls and
town, which of old Smaug stole. Is not that a matter of which we may speak? Further
in his last battle Smaug destroyed the dwellings of the men of Esgaroth, and I am
yet the servant of their Master. I would speak for him and ask whether you have no
thought for the sorrow and misery of his people. They aided you in your distress,
and in recompense you have thus far brought ruin only, though doubtless undesigned.'"
