Not long after, men began slipping away. It wasn't late; not yet midnight, anyway; but I've 

noticed that when your fifties give way to your sixties, late begins coming earlier and earlier. 

I saw Waterhouse slipping his arms into the overcoat Stevens was holding open for him, and 

decided that must  be my cue.I thought it strange that Waterhouse would slip away without 

so much as a word to me (which certainly seemed to be what he was doing; if I had come 

back from shelving the Pound book forty seconds later, he would have been gone), but no 

stranger than most of the other things that had gone on that evening.

没过多久,大家开始起身离开。时间并不是很晚;毕竟,还没有到午夜;但我发现当你五十岁的十年乖

乖让道给你六十岁的十年的时候,所谓的“晚”开始变得越来越早。我看见华特豪斯正将他的胳膊伸进斯蒂

芬斯为他提着的大衣袖子里头,心里认定这一定就是让我回去的暗示。我觉得华特豪斯他起身离开而没有

告诉我一声有点奇怪(实际上似乎他就是这么做的;如果我当时晚四十秒钟把那本庞德的书放回去的话,

他就走掉了),不过还是比不上那个晚上发生的其他事情要怪异。

I stepped out just behind him, and Waterhouse glanced around, as if surprised to see me

... and almost as if he had been startled out of a light doze. 'Share a taxi?' he asked, as though 

we had just met by chance on this deserted, windy street

我赶在他后面离开,华特豪斯回头瞥了一眼,好像看到我很吃惊的样子…简直像是刚从一个小盹儿里惊醒

一般。“一起打个的?”他问,好像我们是刚刚偶然在这空无一人狂风阵阵的街上遇到一样。

'Thank you,' I said. I meant thanks for a great deal more than his offer to share a cab, and 

I believe that was unmistakable in my tone, but he nodded as if that was all I had meant. A 

taxi with its for-hire light lit was cruising slowly down the street - fellows like George 

Waterhouse seem to luck onto cabs even on those miserably cold or snowy New York 

nights when you would swear there isn't a cab to be had on the entire island of Manhattan - 

and he flagged it.

“谢谢。”我说。我不止是向他的主动提出我搭他的顺风的士而道谢,而且我确信我的语气里清楚无疑地

表现出了这一点,但他只是点了点头,好像我只是为的士的事道了个谢而已。一辆亮着“空车”灯的的士

慢慢踱下这条街——乔治·华特豪斯这样的人即使是在寒冷到极点、冰天雪地的纽约夜晚也能有良好的

打车运。你能发誓在这种时候这个曼哈顿岛都找不到一辆出租车——而他就能推翻这条定律。
