His concern with the real costs of their effort and of the training required for it is only indirect, though a monetary assessment of his own labour is necessary for some problems, as will be seen later on.
Его интерес к реальным издержкам, связанным с затратой их труда и с необходимым их обучением, носит лишь косвенный характер, хотя, как мы увидим впоследствии, денежная оценка его личного труда также нужна в некоторых областях приложения такого труда.

The Abbe himself, with a blue apron tied round his waist, and his hands all soiled with his labour, became absorbed in it, and used it as an excuse for no longer going out.
А он, повязав синий передник, с таким усердием отдавался работе, что руки у него немели. Это служило для него предлогом, чтобы никуда не ходить.
