He told her all he had meant to do, to hide her shame, if he had lived, and prayed her, if he died, not to curse his memory, or think the consequences of their sin would be visited on her or their young child; for all the guilt was his.
Он поведал ей обо всем, что намеревался сделать, чтобы скрыть ее позор, если будет жив, и умолял ее, если он умрет, не проклинать его памяти и не думать о том, что последствия их греха падут на нее или на их младенца, ибо вся вина лежит на нем.
