 He quickened his pace until we had decreased the distance which divided us by about half. Then, still keeping a hundred yards behind, we followed into Oxford Street and so down Regent Street. Once our friends stopped and stared into a shop window, upon which Holmes did the same. An instant afterwards he gave a little cry of satisfaction, and, following the direction of his eager eyes, I saw that a hansom cab with a man inside which had halted on the other side of the street was now proceeding slowly onward again.

他加快脚步,直到我们之间的距离缩短了一半左右。然后我们跟着他们,沿着牛津街,走到雷根特街上,始终保持一百码左右的距离。一旦我们的朋友停下看商店的橱窗,福尔摩斯也停下看商店的橱窗。过了一小会儿之后,他发出小小的惊喜的呼喊。顺着他那双锐利的眼睛看向的方向,我看到一辆双轮马车停在路的对面,里面坐着一个男人。现在马车又开始缓缓向前。

     "There's our man, Watson! Come along! We'll have a good look at him, if we can do no more."

“那就是我们的目标,华生!跟上!如果我们不能做得更多的话,也要好好看看他。”

     At that instant I was aware of a bushy black beard and a pair of piercing eyes turned upon us through the side window of the cab. Instantly the trapdoor at the top flew up, something was screamed to the driver, and the cab flew madly off down Regent Street. Holmes looked eagerly round for another, but no empty one was in sight. Then he dashed in wild pursuit amid the stream of the traffic, but the start was too great, and already the cab was out of sight.

那一瞬间,我觉察到一张胡子浓密的脸庞和一双目光凶狠的眼睛转过来,从马车的边窗中看了我们一眼。马车顶的活板门立刻开启,有人在冲着车夫大喊大叫些什么,然后,马车如疯了一般,沿着雷根特街行驶起来。福尔摩斯焦急地四处张望,可周围并没有空马车。他冲动地冲入车流追赶,但这一切发生得太突然了,马车早已消失在视线之外。

 "There now!" said Holmes bitterly as he emerged panting and white with vexation from the tide of vehicles. "Was ever such bad luck and such bad management, too? Watson, Watson, if you are an honest man you will record this also and set it against my successes!"

“唉,”福尔摩斯喘着气,脸色发白,从车水马龙中钻了出来,苦涩地说道,“这样坏的运气和干得这么糟糕的事同时发生,曾经有过吗?华生,华生,如果你是个诚实的人,你就应该把这事也记下来,作为我失败的例子。”

     "Who was the man?"

“那个人是谁?”

     "I have not an idea."

“我不知道。”

     "A spy?"

“一个奸细?”
