I knew all the current gossip about Mrs. Packard before I had parted with Miss Davies. Her story was a simple one. Bred in the West, she had come, immediately after her mother’s death, to live with that mother’s brother in Detroit. In doing this she had walked into a fortune.

在我离开达维斯小姐之前,我知道所有关于帕卡德夫人的传言。她的故事很简单,出生于西部,她妈妈死后就即刻来到底特律和她舅舅一起生活。因此她走上了富裕之路。

 Her uncle was a rich man and when he died, which was about a year after her marriage with Mr. Packard and removal to C — she found herself the recipient of an enormous legacy. 

她舅舅是个富翁,当她和帕卡德先生结婚后移居到C差不多一年之后,她舅舅死了。与此同时,她发现自己是巨款遗产的继承人。

She was therefore a woman of independent means, an advantage which, added to personal attractions of a high order, and manners at once dignified and winning, caused her to be universally regarded as a woman greatly to be envied by all who appreciated a well-founded popularity.(长句。。。)

因此她成为了拥有足够财产过舒适生活的女士,上层社会对她个人关注的增加,即刻获取举止端庄的殊荣的这个好处致使被那些期望有个好生活人群好一番羡慕。因此,她成为了一个经济独立的女性,这个优势让她增添了许多高级人的个人魅力,行为举止马上变得典雅而迷人,这使得她广受那些想过上富裕生活的人的深切嫉妒)

So much for public opinion. It differs materially from that just given me by her husband.

以上就是公众的印象。这与她丈夫刚刚给我的资料有极大区别。

The mayor lived on Franklin Street in a quarter I had seldom visited. As I entered this once aristocratic thoroughfare from Carlton Avenue, I was struck as I had been before by its heterogeneous appearance. 

市长住在富兰克林街道一个我很少光顾的地方,当我从卡尔顿大道进入这个曾经的贵族要道,像之前一样,我被它独特的外观震撼到了。

Houses of strictly modern type neighbored those of a former period, and it was not uncommon to see mansion and hovel confronting each other from the opposite side of the street. Should I find the number I sought attached to one of the crude, unmeaning dwellings I was constantly passing, or to one of mellower aspect and possibly historic association?

完全现代风的住宅和前一段要道(近代风住宅)相邻,豪宅和民房以一条街道相隔对峙并不罕见。我该怎样匹配我找的那个门号?是找我一贯略过的那些粗制没品的建筑,还是醇厚,有历史年代的住宅?(我该怎么找到那个门牌号呢?是从哪些粗糙的,呆板的民居中找呢,还是讲究的,有历史感的建筑群中找呢)


本篇句数:11句(摔,多才11句!!)
