Before the Nagual helped her she was worse off than myself. At least I was young; she was an old cow, fat and tired, begging for her death to come.
Прежде, чем Нагваль помог ей, она была хуже, чем я, по крайней мере, я была молодой, она была старой коровой, жирной и измученной и молила о приходе смерти.

The cow had to be milked and pastured near the swamp and someone had to watch her all day for fear the Yankees or Frank Kennedy’s men would return and take her.
Надо было доить корову и пасти ее возле болота, не спуская с нее глаз, так как в любую минуту могли вернуться янки или солдаты Франка Кеннеди и увести ее с собой.

And his foolish mirth and the French phrase, as incongruous in his mouth as a saddle on a cow, made me enjoy sleeping at that jocose youth's.
И глупая веселость его и французская фраза, которая шла к нему как к корове седло, сделали то, что я с чрезвычайным удовольствием выспался тогда у этого шута.

One by one, with my trenchant sentences, I lopped off the heads of the political hydra, while I listened, full of kindly peace, to the home-coming cow-bells and wondered what Mrs. Flanagan was going to have for supper.
Моими острыми фразами я срезал, одну за другой, головы политической гидры и в то же время, полный благожелательного мира,прислушивался к колокольчикам бредущих домой коров и старался угадать, что м-с Фланаган готовит на ужин.

At last he found the house in Lake Street. It was a decrepit little house, sunk on one side, with three windows looking into the street, and with a muddy yard, in the middle of which stood a solitary cow.
Наконец он разыскал в Озерной улице дом мещанки Калмыковой, ветхий домишко, перекосившийся, всего в три окна на улицу, с грязным двором, посреди которого уединенно стояла корова.
