Her face was, indeed, by no means disagreeable in itself, though destitute of beauty; and there was a meek impression of suffering patience in her large blue eyes, which were commonly fixed upon the ground.
Правда, в ее некрасивом лице не было ничего отталкивающего, а большие голубые глаза, которые она обычно держала опущенными, были даже хороши своим кротким, грустным, почти страдальческим выражением.

I was soon supplanted by a rival, turned out of doors quite destitute, and obliged to continue this abominable trade, which appears so pleasant to you men, while to us women it is the utmost abyss of misery.
Вскоре у меня появилась соперница, и меня выгнали без всякого вознаграждения. Я принуждена была снова взяться за это гнусное ремесло, которое вам, мужчинам, кажется таким приятным, а нам сулит неисчислимые бедствия.
