Alice had no idea what to do, and in despair she put her hand in her pocket, and pulled out a box of comfits, (luckily the salt water had not got into it), and handed them round as prizes. There was exactly one a-piece all round.
爱丽丝有些不知所措,郁闷的把手伸进口袋,掏出一盒糖果——很幸运咸水没有渗入到里面,作为奖品发给大家。正好除了她每位一块。


`But she must have a prize herself, you know,' said the Mouse.

“但是,你要知道,她自己也必须有一份奖品。”老鼠说。


`Of course,' the Dodo replied very gravely. `What else have you got in your pocket?' he went on, turning to Alice.

“这是当然,”渡渡鸟严肃的回答到。他转向爱丽丝,继续说“你口袋里还有什么?”


`Only a thimble,' said Alice sadly.

“只有一个顶针”爱丽丝说。


`Hand it over here,' said the Dodo.

“把它交出来,”渡渡鸟说。


Then they all crowded round her once more, while the Dodo solemnly presented the thimble, saying `We beg your acceptance of this elegant thimble'; and, when it had finished this short speech, they all cheered.

接着当渡渡鸟庄重的展示顶针时大家又把她围了起来,渡渡鸟说:“我们希望你能接受这个精致的顶针。 ”它结束这番简短的发言时,大家都欢呼起来。


Alice thought the whole thing very absurd, but they all looked so grave that she did not dare to laugh; and, as she could not think of anything to say, she simply bowed, and took the thimble, looking as solemn as she could.

爱丽丝觉得整件事很可笑,但他们看起来都很严肃认真,使她不敢笑出来;而且,她想不出要说什么,只是鞠躬,接下顶针,尽量使自己看起来庄重。


The next thing was to eat the comfits: this caused some noise and confusion, as the large birds complained that they could not taste theirs, and the small ones choked and had to be patted on the back. 

接下来就是吃糖了:这造成了一些噪音和混乱,因为大鸟们抱怨还没尝出糖的味道,小鸟们却被噎着了,要被拍背。不过,最后终于消停了,大家再次坐下来围成一个圈,祈求老鼠再给他们讲点什么。


However, it was over at last, and they sat down again in a ring, and begged the Mouse to tell them something more. 

不过,最后终于消停了,大家再次坐下来围成一个圈,祈求老鼠再给他们讲点什么。


`You promised to tell me your history, you know,' said Alice, `and why it is you hate--C and D,' she added in a whisper, half afraid that it would be offended again.

“你要知道,你承诺过告诉我你的历史的。”爱丽丝说,“为什么你厌恶猫和狗,”她低声添加说,一半是因为担心再次冒犯了老鼠。
