When, turning to the Campaigner, Clive said he wished that she could persuade me to stay to dinner, she acquiesced graciously and at once in that proposal, and vowed that her daughter would be delighted if I could condescend to eat their humble fare.
Когда Клайв обратился к полковой даме с просьбой убедить меня остаться у них обедать, она тотчас же любезно поддержала его, уверяя, что ее дочка будет просто счастлива, если я соизволю разделить с ними их скромную трапезу.

Aglaya had simply frightened him; yet he did not give up all thoughts of her--though he never seriously hoped that she would condescend to him.
