Через стеклянную крышу холла в Робин-Хилле лучи послеполуденного июльского солнца падали как раз на поворот широкой лестницы, и в этой полоске света стоял маленький Джон Форсайт, одетый в синий полотняный костюмчик.
Through the massive skylight illuminating the hall at Robin Hill, the July sunlight at five o'clock fell just where the broad stairway turned; and in that radiant streak little Jon Forsyte stood, blue-linen-suited.
Волосы его светились, светились и глаза из-под нахмуренных бровей: он обдумывал, как спуститься по лестнице в последний раз перед тем, как автомобиль привезёт со станции его отца и мать.
His hair was shining, and his eyes, from beneath a frown, for he was considering how to go downstairs, this last of innumerable times, before the car brought his father and mother home.
Через четыре ступеньки, а внизу пять сразу?
Four at a time, and five at the bottom?
По перилам?
Down the banisters?
Но как?
But in which fashion?

На спине, свесив руки в обе стороны?
On his back, with his arms stretched down on both sides?

Полное имя маленького Джона было Джолион; но поскольку его живой отец и умерший старший брат уже давно забрали себе два других уменьшительных — Джо и Джолли, ему не оставалось ничего другого, как согласиться на сокращённое Джон.
But one can be too simple in this life, for his real name was Jolyon, and his living father and dead half-brother had usurped of old the other shortenings, Jo and Jolly. As a fact little Jon had done his best to conform to convention and spell himself first Jhon, then John; not till his father had explained the sheer necessity, had he spelled his name Jon.
До самого этого дня в его сердце нераздельно царили: отец, конюх Боб, который играл на концертино, и няня
Up till now that father had possessed what was left of his heart by the groom, Bob, who played the concertina, and his nurse
