She wore a broad-edged dhoti (the reader should not forget that all the characters are Indians), only the upper half of her body being visible, the lower being covered up by the low backs of the cane chairs.

她身穿一件宽边托蒂裙(读者们应该记得所有的人物都是印度人),只有上半身可见,下半身隐没在两把藤椅的椅背后面。

 She was distinctly behind the chairs, and consequently slightly out of focus. Still everything was quite clear. Even her long necklace was visible through the little opening in the dhoti near the right shoulder.

她显然是站在椅子后面,而且因此有点没对上焦。但甚至她长长的项链穿过右肩附近的裙子开襟都清晰可见。

 She was resting her hands on the backs of the chairs and the fingers were nearly totally out of focus, but a ring on the right ring-finger was clearly visible.

她把双手搭在两把椅背上,手指几乎完全失焦,但是右手无名指上的指环却显得非常清楚。

She looked like a handsome young woman of twenty-two, short and thin.

她看起来像一位端庄温雅的年轻女士,约摸二十二岁上下,娇小纤瘦。

One of the ear-rings was also clearly visible, although the face itself was slightly out of focus. One thing, and probably the funniest thing, that we overlooked then but observed afterwards, was that immediately behind the three ladies was a barred window.

她的一只耳环也看得很清楚,虽然她的脸部也有点失焦。有一件事,可能是最有趣的一件事了,我们之前忽略掉了,但是后来注意到了——紧接着三位女士的背后有一扇百叶窗。

The two ladies, who were one on each side, covered up the bars to a certain height from the bottom with their bodies, but the lady in the middle was partly transparent because the bars of the window were very faintly visible through her.

两边坐着的两位女士,在某一高度挡住了身后的百叶窗,但是中间那位却是半透明的,因为令人眩晕地,透过她依然可以看到那些窗栏。

This fact, however, as I have said already, we did not observe then. We only laughed at Jones and tried to assure him that he was either drunk or asleep. At this moment Smith of our office walked in, removing the trouser clips from his legs.

这一情况,像我之前讲到的,当时我们并没有注意到。我们只是嘲笑琼斯是喝多了或者没睡醒。这时我们办公室的史密斯走了进来,从腿上取下裤夹。
