Глава I

CHAPTER 1

Едва ли кто-нибудь, кто знал Кэтрин Морланд в детстве, мог подумать, что из нее вырастет героиня романа.
No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her born to be an heroine.
Общественное положение и характеры ее родителей, собственные качества и наклонности — все у нее было для этого совершенно неподходящим.
Her situation in life, the character of her father and mother, her own person and disposition, were all equally against her.
Отец ее был священником, не бедным и забитым, а, напротив, весьма преуспевающим, — правда, он носил заурядное имя Ричард и никогда не был хорош собой.
Her father was a clergyman, without being neglected, or poor, and a very respectable man, though his name was Richard - and he had never been handsome.
Не считая двух неплохих церковных приходов, он имел независимое состояние, и ему не было нужды держать своих дочек в черном теле.
He had a considerable independence besides two good livings - and he was not in the least addicted to locking up his daughters.
Мать ее отличалась рассудительностью и добрым нравом, и, как ни странно, — превосходным здоровьем.
Her mother was a woman of useful plain sense, with a good temper, and, what is more remarkable, with a good constitution.
Еще до Кэтрин она .успела родить трех сыновей, а произведя на свет дочку, отнюдь не умерла, но продолжала жить на земле, прижила еще шестерых детей и растила весь выводок в полном благополучии.
She had three sons before Catherine was born; and instead of dying in bringing the latter into the world, as anybody might expect, she still lived on - lived to have six children more - to see them growing up around her, and to enjoy excellent health herself.
Семейство, насчитывающее десятерых детей, обычно считается прекрасным семейством с вполне достаточным числом рук, ног и голов. Увы, Морланды не могли претендовать на этот эпитет во всех его смыслах, ибо отнюдь не отличались внешней привлекательностью. На протяжении многих лет Кэтрин оставалась такой же дурнушкой, как и все ее родичи.
A family of ten children will be always called a fine family, where there are heads and arms and legs enough for the number; but the Morlands had little other right to the word, for they were in general very plain, and Catherine, for many years of her life, as plain as any.
