 "The facts of the case are simple. Sir Charles Baskerville was in the habit every night before going to bed of walking down the famous Yew Alley of Baskerville Hall. The evidence of the Barrymores shows that this had been his custom. On the 4th of May Sir Charles had declared his intention of starting next day for London, and had ordered Barrymore to prepare his luggage. That night he went out as usual for his nocturnal walk, in the course of which he was in the habit of smoking a cigar. He never returned.
“案情十分简单。查尔斯·巴斯克维尔爵士在每晚就寝前,有沿巴斯克维尔庄园中著名的水松夹道散步的习惯。据白瑞摩夫妇的证词,爵士多年一向如此。5月4日晚,查尔斯爵士说他第二天打算去伦敦,并叫白瑞摩为他准备行李。当晚他照常出去散步,散步时习惯抽一支雪茄。之后就再也没有回来过。

 At twelve o'clock Barrymore, finding the hall door still open, became alarmed, and, lighting a lantern, went in search of his master. The day had been wet, and Sir Charles's footmarks were easily traced down the Alley.

十二点钟的时候白瑞摩发现大厅的门依然开着,便起了警觉之心。他点亮一盏灯笼,去寻找主人。那天天气潮湿,查尔斯爵士的脚印顺着夹道一直向下,很容易发现(沿着夹道走下去,很容易发现查尔斯爵士的脚印)

 Half-way down this walk there is a gate which leads out on to the moor. There were indications that Sir Charles had stood for some little time here. He then proceeded down the Alley, and it was at the far end of it that his body was discovered. One fact which has not been explained is the statement of Barrymore that his master's footprints altered their character from the time that he passed the moor-gate, and that he appeared from thence onward to have been walking upon his toes.

夹道半路上有一扇门通向沼泽,有迹象显示查尔斯爵士曾在这里站了一会儿。之后他沿着夹道继续前行。然而在白瑞摩的证词中有一点令人费解:自从过了那扇通往沼泽的小门之后,爵士的足迹特征就发生了改变,看起来像是在用脚尖走路。

 One Murphy, a gipsy horse-dealer, was on the moor at no great distance at the time, but he appears by his own confession to have been the worse for drink. He declares that he heard cries, but is unable to state from what direction they came. 

当时,一个名叫墨菲的吉普赛马贩离沼泽不远,然而他坦承自己喝醉了,听到了叫喊声却不知是从哪个方向来的。
