“I should be telling a story if I said she was beautiful,” she thought; “and I should know I was telling a story. I believe I am as ugly as she is-in my way. What did she say that for?”

”要是我说她很漂亮,我应该是在说瞎话,“她想着,”我就知道我在说瞎话。我相信我和她都长得不好看。她说我长得漂亮是为了什么呢?“


After she had known Miss Minchin longer she learned why she had said it. She discovered that she said the same thing to each papa and mama who brought a child to her school.

在莎拉认识闵钦小姐很久之后才知道她为什么这么说。她发现闵钦小姐对每对把小孩送到学校的父母都这么说。


She stood near her father and listened while he and Miss Minchin talked. She had been brought to the seminary because Lady Meredith’s two little girls had been educated there, and Captain Crewe had a great respect for Lady Meredith’s experience. Sara was to be what was known as “a parlor border,” and she was to enjoy even greater privileges than parlor borders usually did. She was to have a pretty bedroom and sitting room of her own; she was to have a pony and a carriage, and a maid to take the place of the ayah who had been her nurse in India.

她挨着她爸爸站着,听着爸爸和闵钦小姐说话。她来到这个学校就是因为梅瑞迪斯女士的两个小女儿都在这里学习,克鲁上校很敬佩梅瑞迪斯女士。莎拉是个”边界人“,她享受着比”边界人“更多的特权,自己有漂亮的卧室和客厅,有一头小马和一辆马车,一个女仆代替印度女仆照顾她起居。
