Lestrade glanced at his note-book. "John Rance," he said. "He is off duty now. You will find him at 46, Audley Court, Kennington Park Gate."
雷斯垂得看了他的笔记本一眼。”约翰·兰斯,”他说,“他现在不值班。你可以在Audley法院46号,肯林顿花园大门那儿找他。”
Holmes took a note of the address.
福尔摩斯记下了地址。
"Come along, Doctor," he said; "we shall go and look him up. I'll tell you one thing which may help you in the case," he continued, turning to the two detectives. "There has been murder done, and the murderer was a man. He was more than six feet high, was in the prime of life, had small feet for his height, wore coarse, square-toed boots and smoked a Trichinopoly cigar. He came here with his victim in a four-wheeled cab, which was drawn by a horse with three old shoes and one new one on his off fore leg. In all probability the murderer had a florid face, and the finger-nails of his right hand were remarkably long. These are only a few indications, but they may assist you."
“医生,走吧,”他说,“我们得去拜访拜访他了。我告诉你们一件也许对你们查案有帮助的事。”他转身对着那两个探员继续说,“这是件谋杀案,凶手是个男人,超过六英尺高,正值壮年,脚很小,对于他的身高来说,穿着粗劣的方头靴子,抽Trichinopoly雪茄。他和受害者一起坐四轮马车来到这儿,拉车的马穿着三只旧铁蹄,一只新铁蹄  。凶手多半脸色红润,而且右手指甲很长。这些只是一点特征,但也许可以帮到你们。“
Lestrade and Gregson glanced at each other with an incredulous smile.
雷斯垂得和格雷格森看着对方,不可置信地笑了。
"If this man was murdered, how was it done?" asked the former.
”如果这个人是被谋杀的,凶手是怎么做到的呢?”雷斯垂得问。
"Poison," said Sherlock Holmes curtly, and strode off. "One other thing, Lestrade," he added, turning round at the door: "'Rache,' is the German for 'revenge;' so don't lose your time looking for Miss Rachel."
“毒药,”夏洛克.福尔摩斯简略地说,大步走了出去。”还有一件事,雷斯垂得,“他在门边转过身加道,”Rache 在德语里是”复仇“的意思,所以不要浪费时间去找什么Rachel小姐了。”
With which Parthian shot he walked away, leaving the two rivals open-mouthed behind him. 
甩下这句话后,福尔摩斯走了,留下身后两个目瞪口呆的竞争对手。

( Parthian shot,Parthian指两千多年前居住在伊朗的帕提亚人,他们精于作战,帕提亚骑兵惯用的战术是佯作退却,然而却突然返身向麻痹大意的追兵射出雨点般的回马箭。这伤人的厉害招数被人们转用来指临走时说的尖刻话或者表示的敌意姿态。)


第三章终于结束了。。。
