“Do you want me to believe that there were only two persons when the plate was exposed and three when it was developed?” I asked. “That is exactly what has happened,” said Jones.

你是想让我相信你曝光感光板的时候照的是两个人,照片洗出来却是三个人么?我问。但这就是已经发生的事实,琼斯说。

“Then it must be the most wonderful developer you used, or was it that this was the second exposure given to the same plate?”

那这一定是你用显影剂用得最好的一回了,还是说你对同一块底板曝光了两次?

“The developer is the one which I have been using for the last three years, and the plate, the one I charged on Saturday night out of a new box that I had purchased only on Saturday afternoon.”

显影剂就是我过去用了三年的那同一种,还有那底板,正是我星期六下午买到手,星期六晚上才装进去的的那一块。必要的时候伸手扶在墙上或是椅子上。

A number of other clerks had come up in the meantime, and were taking great interest in the picture and in Jones' statement.

这时,其他许多同事也围了过来,津津有味地讨论着那张照片和琼斯的话。

It is only right that a description of the picture be given here for the benefit of the reader. I wish I could reproduce the original picture too, but that for certain reasons is impossible.

为了方便读者在此应该给出那张照片的描述。我真诚地希望自己能够在线出那张照片的原貌,但是出于某种原因这么做是不可能的。

When the plate was actually exposed there were only two ladies, both of whom were sitting in cane chairs.

在底片感光的时候上面只有两位女士,而且都坐在藤椅上。

When the plate was developed it was found that there was in the picture a figure, that of a lady, standing in the middle.

当底片冲洗出来之后,上面多了一位,那位女士站在两人中间。
