"Thou foolish fellow," said Candide; "I have delivered thee out of the galleys, I have paid thy ransom, and thy sister's also; she was a scullion, and is very ugly, yet I am so condescending as to marry her; and dost thou pretend to oppose the match?
Сумасшедший барон, — сказал ему Кандид, — я избавил тебя от галер, заплатил за тебя выкуп, выкупил и твою сестру. Она мыла здесь посуду, она уродлива — я, по своей доброте, готов жениться на ней, а ты еще противишься.

He read them twelve specimens; he aroused very little mirth, however; only Sanin smiled, from politeness, and he himself, Herr Klueber, after each anecdote, gave vent to a brief, business-like, but still condescending laugh.
Прочел их штук двенадцать; однако веселости возбудил мало: один Санин из приличия скалил зубы, да сам он, г-н Клюбер, после каждого анекдота, производил короткий,деловой - и все-таки снисходительный смех.

At first Ivan Dmitritch held aloof from him, suspected him of evil designs, and openly expressed his hostility. But afterwards he got used to him, and his abrupt manner changed to one of condescending irony.
В первое время Иван Дмитрич дичился его, подозревал в злом умысле и откровенно выражал свою неприязнь, потом же привык к нему и свое резкое обращение сменил на снисходительно-ироническое.
