At some point Stevens came by with a second martini (by then I had settled into a chair of my own 
with a volume of Ezra Pound). It was as perfect as the first. As I sipped it I saw two of those 
present, George Gregson and Harry Stein (Harry was six years dead on the night Emlyn McCarron 
told us the story of the Breathing Method), leave the room by a peculiar door less than three 
feet high. It was an Alice Down the Rabbit-Hole door if ever there was one. They left it open, 
and shortly after their odd exit from the library I heard the muted click of billiard balls.
Stevens passed by and asked if I would like another martini. I declined with real regret
He nodded. 'Very goodt sir.' His face never changed, and yet I had an obscure feeling that
I had somehow pleased him.
一会儿史蒂文斯走过来给我第二杯马提尼(那时候我已经独自坐在一张椅子上读着一本埃兹拉·庞德)。这一
杯和上一杯一样美味。在我小口小口喝着酒的时候我看见两位在场的会员,乔治·格雷格森和哈利·斯坦恩(
在埃姆林·麦卡伦给我们讲那个呼吸方法的故事的时候,哈利已经去世六年了),进到一扇不到三英尺高的门
里。就是爱丽丝跨进仙境的兔子洞那样的门,如果真的有这种门的话。他们让门半开着,然后没过多久我就听
见里头传来台球撞击的声音。史蒂文斯走过来,问我是不是还再要一杯马提尼。我说不用了,心里却觉得十分
后悔。他点点头。“好的先生。”他的表情没有变化,但是我有种莫名的感觉我让他觉得很高兴。
Laughter startled me from my book sometime later. Someone had thrown a packet of chemical powder 
into the fire and turned the flames momentarily parti-coloured. I thought of my boyhood again ... 
but not in any wistful, sloppily romantic-nostalgic way. I feel a great need to emphasize that, 
God knows why. I thought of times when I had done just such a thing as a kid, but the memory was 
a strong one, pleasant, untinged with regret.  
过了一会儿一阵笑声惊得我从书上抬起头来。有人把一包化学药粉丢进了炉火里,火焰一时之间色彩斑斓。我
又想起了我的少年时光……但决不是那种愁苦的、伤感而庸俗的浪漫怀旧。我觉得很有必要强调这一点,天知

道为什么。我想起我小时候做这些事情的日子,但记忆是鲜明的、愉快的,不带丝毫遗憾。
