«Nevertheless, if his lordship have a fancy,» said the Master, smiling, «I think you might indulge him; for, if I mistake not, there has been water drank here at no distant date, and with good relish too.»
— Но таково желание сэра Эштона, Калеб, — сказал, улыбаясь, Рэвенсвуд. — Мне кажется, вам следует исполнить его просьбу, тем более что, если мне не изменяет память, еще недавно здесь не гнушались пить воду и даже находили ее очень вкусной.

And thus, though surrounded by circle upon circle of consternations and affrights, did these inscrutable creatures at the centre freely and fearlessly indulge in all peaceful concernments; yea, serenely revelled in dalliance and delight.
Так, окруженные кольцами ужаса и смятения, спокойно и бесстрашно предавались эти загадочные создания в центре круга всевозможным мирным занятиям, безмятежно наслаждаясь весельем и восторгами любовной игры.

I didn't use to indulge very often - only on holidays - but my mother had just passed away, and I'd been taking comfort, the way you do.
Редко себе позволял, только по праздникам, а тут матушка преставилась, ну и поутешался, как положено.

There was a lamp burning in the Ark, for the family was accustomed to indulge in this luxury on extraordinary occasions, and possessed the means, the vessel being of a form and material to render it probable it had once been an occupant of the chest.
В ковчеге горела лампа; эту роскошь семья позволяла себе в исключительных случаях. Судя по форме и материалу, лампа эта была из числа вещей, хранившихся прежде в сундуке.

I have no right to ask your help, and I dare not allow myself to indulge in any hopes; but once you said just one word, and that word lighted up the night of my life, and became the beacon of my days.
Я не имею никаких прав на ваше участие, не смею иметь никаких надежд; но когда-то вы выговорили одно слово, одно только слово, и это слово озарило всю черную ночь моей жизни и стало для меня маяком.
