Майская луна ярко освещала частный пансион миссис Мэрфи.
The May moon shone bright upon the private boarding-house of Mrs. Murphy.
Загляните в календарь, и вы узнаете, какой величины площадь освещали в тот вечер ее лучи.
By reference to the almanac a large amount of territory will be discovered upon which its rays also fell.
Лихорадка весны была в полном разгаре, а за ней должна была последовать сенная лихорадка.
Spring was in its heydey, with hay fever soon to follow.
В парках показались молодые листочки и закупщики из западных и южных штатов.
The parks were green with new leaves and buyers for the Western and Southern trade.
Расцветали цветы, и процветали курортные агенты; воздух и судебные приговоры становились мягче; везде играли шарманки, фонтаны и картежники.
Flowers and summer-resort agents were blowing; the air and answers to Lawson were growing milder; hand-organs, fountains and pinochle were playing everywhere.
Окна пансиона миссис Мэрфи были открыты.
The windows of Mrs. Murphy's boarding-house were open.
Кучка жильцов сидела на высоком крыльце, на круглых и плоских матах, похожих на блинчики.
A group of boarders were seated on the high stoop upon round, flat mats like German pancakes.
У одного из окон второго этажа миссис Мак-Каски поджидала мужа.
In one of the second-floor front windows Mrs. McCaskey awaited her husband.
Ужин стыл на столе.
Supper was cooling on the table.
Жар из него перешел в миссис Мак-Каски.
Its heat went into Mrs. McCaskey.
Мак-Каски явился в девять.
At nine Mr. McCaskey came.
На руке у него было пальто, а в зубах трубка. Он попросил извинения за беспокойство, проходя между жильцами и осторожно выбирая место, куда поставить ногу в ботинке невероятных размеров.
He carried his coat on his arm and his pipe in his teeth; and he apologised for disturbing the boarders on the steps as he selected spots of stone between them on which to set his size 9, width Ds.
Открыв дверь в комнату, он был приятно изумлен: вместо конфорки от печки или машинки для картофельного пюре в него полетели только слова.
As he opened the door of his room he received a surprise. Instead of the usual stove-lid or potato-masher for him to dodge, came only words.
