  "I could not call you in, Mr. Holmes, without disclosing these facts to the world, and I have already given my reasons for not wishing to do so. Besides, besides--"
“福尔摩斯先生,在整件事情没有向世人和盘托出之前,我不能叫您去,我也已经解释了我为什么不想这样做。另外,另外——”
     "Why do you hesitate?"
“你犹豫什么?”
     "There is a realm in which the most acute and most experienced of detectives is helpless."
“有一个世界,在那里,最敏锐、最有经验的侦探都束手无策。”
     "You mean that the thing is supernatural?"
“你的意思是,这件事是超自然的?”
     "I did not positively say so."
“我可没说过。”
     "No, but you evidently think it."
“你是没说过,但很显然,你在想这一点。”
     "Since the tragedy, Mr. Holmes, there have come to my ears several incidents which are hard to reconcile with the settled order of Nature."
“在惨剧发生之后,福尔摩斯先生,我听说了几件事情,很难用自然秩序来解释的事情。”
     "For example?"
“比如?”

     "I find that before the terrible event occurred several people had seen a creature upon the moor which corresponds with this Baskerville demon, and which could not possibly be any animal known to science.

 “我发现,在这件可怕的事情发生之前,有几个人在沼泽里看见过一头动物。它不可能是科学上已经发现的任何动物,应该就是巴斯克维尔的怪物。

They all agreed that it was a huge creature, luminous, ghastly, and spectral. I have cross-examined these men, one of them a hard-headed countryman, one a farrier, and one a moorland farmer, who all tell the same story of this dreadful apparition, exactly corresponding to the hell-hound of the legend. I assure you that there is a reign of terror in the district, and that it is a hardy man who will cross the moor at night."

他们都说,那怪物体型巨大、发着夜光,十分骇人,像鬼一样。我问了这些人,一个是头脑顽固的乡下人,一个是兽医,还有一个是沼泽地里的农民,都告诉我一样的故事,说他们看到了可怕的鬼怪,与传说中那只来自地狱的猎犬一模一样。我向您保证,现在沼泽地区弥漫着恐慌,晚上敢穿越沼泽的人,真的是最勇敢的人了。”
     "And you, a trained man of science, believe it to be supernatural?"
“然后您一个受过训练的科学家就相信这是超自然的了?”
     "I do not know what to believe."
“我不知道该相信什么。”
     Holmes shrugged his shoulders.

福尔摩斯耸了耸肩。
