Глава I


Мистер Джонс с фермы «Усадьба» закрыл на ночь курятник, но он был так пьян, что забыл заткнуть дыры в стене.
Mr. Jones, of the Manor Farm, had locked the hen-houses for the night, but was too drunk to remember to shut the popholes.
Ткнув ногой заднюю дверь, он проковылял через двор, не в силах выбраться из круга света от фонаря, пляшущего в его руке, нацедил себе последний стаканчик пива из бочонка на кухне и отправился в постель, где уже похрапывала миссис Джонс.
With the ring of light from his lantern dancing from side to side, he lurched across the yard, kicked off his boots at the back door, drew himself a last glass of beer from the barrel in the scullery, and made his way up to bed, where Mrs. Jones was already snoring.
Как только в спальне погас свет, на ферме началось беспокойное движение.
As soon as the light in the bedroom went out there was a stirring and a fluttering all through the farm buildings.
Весь день ходили слухи, что старый Майер, призовой боров из Миддлуайта, прошлой ночью видел странный сон и хотел бы поведать о нем остальным животным.
Word had gone round during the day that old Major, the prize Middle White boar, had had a strange dream on the previous night and wished to communicate it to the other animals.
Все договорились встретиться в большом амбаре, как только мистер Джонс окончательно скроется из глаз.
It had been agreed that they should all meet in the big barn as soon as Mr. Jones was safely out of the way.
Старый Майер (так его всегда звали, хотя имя, под которым его представляли на выставках, звучало как краса Уиллингдона), пользовался на ферме таким уважением, что все безоговорочно согласились.
Old Major (so he was always called, though the name under which he had been exhibited was Willingdon Beauty) was so highly regarded on the farm that everyone was quite ready to lose an hour’s sleep in order to hear what he had to say.
Майер уже ждал, как обычно, уютно расположившись на своей соломенной подстилке на возвышении в конце амбара, под фонарем, подвешенным к балке.
At one end of the big barn, on a sort of raised platform, Major was already ensconced on his bed of straw, under a lantern which hung from a beam.
