The second course was two ducks trussed up in the form of fiddles; sausages and puddings resembling flutes and hautboys, and a breast of veal in the shape of a harp.
Во вторую перемену вошли две утки, приготовленные в форме скрипок, сосиски и колбаса в виде флейты и гобоя и телячья грудинка в виде арфы.

- Come, strike up, tabor and harp, strike up, fiddle and rebeck - dance and be merry to-day, and let care come to-morrow.

'May I hope to prove them all?' said Mr Dombey, with solemn gallantry, laying down a drawing he had held, and motioning towards the harp.
— Могу ли я познакомиться с ними? — с напыщенной галантностью осведомился мистер Дом6и, полошив рисунок, который держал в руке, и указывая на арфу.

" And, leaning forward, she raised herself, and, bending the harp towards her, struck some wandering chords. Then her low voice broke out in perfect and most sweet song. And thus she sang:
– Она села на ложе, спустила ноги, притянула к себе арфу и несколько раз пробежала по ее струнам пальцами, потом запела своим низким, бархатным голосом прекрасную песнь любви:

And so saying, he reached the harp, and entertained his guest with the following characteristic song, to a sort of derry-down chorus, appropriate to an old English ditty.
