Так внутри этой забытой богом цепи холмов возник особый народ, раса, словно выросшая из земли, человеческое племя в три сотни душ, которое будто заново начинало историю…

I took them from her with a most desolate sensation; and, glancing at such phrases at the top, as 'My ever dearest and own Dora,' 'My best beloved angel,' 'My blessed one for ever,' and the like, blushed deeply, and inclined my head.
С чувством полного отчаяния я взял у нее письма и, взглянув на обращения: «Моя вечно любимая Дора». «Мой обожаемый ангел», «Моя дорогая и единственная» и тому подобные, густо покраснел и опустил голову.

Again she repressed the tears that had begun to flow; and, putting out her trembling hand, and touching Mr. Peggotty, as if there was some healing virtue in him, went away along the desolate road.
Снова слезы показались у нее на глазах, и снова она овладела собой. Потом она протянула дрожащую руку, коснулась руки мистера Пегготи, словно черпая у него целительную силу, и побрела по пустынной дороге.

Фонари и освещенные окна лавок только усиливали эту тоску бесприютности, ускоряя приход ночи и темноты.
