Here's a possibility:

Gandalf, speaking about Beorn wrote:
At any rate, he is under no enchantment but his own.

I dunno about this one; some of the key words remain, but the meaning is completely different. I may need to give lots of hints.

Is "warning" one of the key words that you referred to before?

Yes, but it's in a different tense in the original. It's actually a verb in the original, but ended up as a noun in the translation.

(I can give you the exact tense if it will help)

Is it something to do with "Warn of his return"?

Is it Gandalf to Frodo: "‘I am not warning you against leaving an address at the post-office!"

Nope.

Further hint: in the original, it's "warned".

Is it Merry to the leader of the ruffians in the Shire: ‘We have met before,’ he said to the leader, ‘and I warned you not to come back here.'

I think this is going to be a bit of a challenge.

We got a good price for that.
