Something worth my knowing; something which might explain Mayor Packard’s fears and Mrs. Packard’s —

有些事情值得我考虑;那些可能解释帕卡德市长的担心以及帕克的夫人的。。。

There I stopped. It was where the girl had stopped. She and not I must round out this uncompleted sentence.

在这里我停住了。就在那个女孩刚刚停住的地方。是她,而不是我,必须将那句没说完的句子说完整。

Meanwhile I occupied myself in unpacking my two bags and making acquaintance with the room which, I felt, was destined to be the scene of many, anxious thoughts. 

与此同时我忙着打理我那两个包裹,了解这个房间。我感到它注定会成为很多忧思想法的背景之地。

Its first effect had been a cheerful one, owing to its two large windows, one looking out on a stretch of clear sky above a mass of low, huddled buildings, and the other on the wall of the adjacent house which, though near enough to obstruct the view, was not near enough to exclude all light. 

初步印象很好,得益于它的两个大窗户。一个可以通过大片低矮拥簇的建筑物上面看到清澈的天空,另一个在临近的房屋的墙上,虽然很近以至于妨碍了观景,但是还没有近到能挡住所有的光线。

Another and closer scrutiny of the room did not alter the first impression. 

再仔细近距离看这个房间并不影响初次印象。

To the advantages of light were added those of dainty furnishing and an exceptionally pleasing color scheme. 

光线的好处就是强化了优美的布置以及特别赏心悦目的色彩设计。

There was no richness anywhere, but an attractive harmony which gave one an instantaneous feeling of home.

这里没有奢华,只是瞬间给人一种和睦的家庭感。

 From the little brass bedstead curtained with cretonne, to the tiny desk filled with everything needful for immediate use,

 用印花棉布做帘幕的小小的黄铜床架,到精致的桌上放满各种必需品和急用品,

I saw evidences of the most careful housekeeping, and was vainly asking myself what could have come into Mrs. Packard’s life to disturb so wholesome a nature, when my attention was arrested by a picture hanging at the right of the window overlooking the next house.

我看到了考虑周全的持家证据,白费心思的问自己,是什么突然出现,打乱了帕卡德夫人如此自然的一切?此刻我的注意力被一幅画打乱,透过隔壁房屋的窗户,正好看见它挂在上面。
