He sat down at his desk and went to work, ignoring Holmes, and in the work belittling him.
Он сел за пишущую машинку и застучал, словно Хомса здесь не было, самой своей деловитостью показывая, что не ставит капитана ни в грош.

However, far be it from us to think of belittling the importance of Mr. Tikhomirov’s talisman; not only do we know its worth, we even wan t to try and apply it ourselves.
Впрочем, мы далеки от мысли унижать значение тихомировского талисмана; мы не только знаем цену ему, но и сами хотим попробовать применить его к делу.

And while I like writers-because if you ask a writer anything you usually get an answer-still it belittled him in my eyes.
И хотя мне сценаристы по душе, - спроси у сценариста, у писателя, о чем хочешь, и обычно получишь ответ, - но все же Уайт упал в моих глазах.

I’m not belittling your problem-I’d be the last person in the world to do that-but I am asking you to change your point of view for a minute or two.
Я вовсе не преуменьшаю ваших проблем — кто угодно, только не я, — но прошу изменить ваш взгляд на вещи хотя бы на минуту-другую.
