The old fighters' reliance on gut instinct sometimes galled well-educated audiences' sensibilities, but other audiences warmed to their blunt language and folksy manner.

As it was, I lived ungazed at and unmolested, hardly thanked for the pittance of food and clothes which I gave, so much does suffering blunt even the coarsest sensations of men.
Как бы то ни было, я жил, не опасаясь любопытных взглядов и помех и едва получая благодарность за пищу и одежду, которые я раздавал: до такой степени страдания заглушают в людях простейшие чувства.

Down he goes to the Commons, to see the lawyer and draw the blunt-very smart-top boots on -nosegay in his button-hole-broad-brimmed tile-green shawl -quite the gen'l'm'n.
Вот он и пошел в Коммонс посоветоваться с законником и выправить капитал, расфрантился — сапоги с отворотами, букет в петлице, широкополая шляпа, зеленый шарф, — совсем джентльмен.
