Without replying to the princess's question, he frowned, became silent, and began hurriedly swallowing the delicacy that lay on his plate, the appearance and taste of which both completely mystified him.
Не отвечая княгине, он нахмурился, замолчал и стал поспешно есть, не жуя, лежавшее у него на тарелке утонченное кушанье непонятного для него вида и даже вкуса.

Zossimov, who had begun his sage advice partly to make an effect before the ladies, was certainly somewhat mystified, when, glancing at his patient, he observed unmistakable mockery on his face.
Зосимов, начавший свои умные советы отчасти и для эффекта перед дамами, был, конечно, несколько озадачен, когда, кончив речь и взглянув на своего слушателя, заметил в лице его решительную насмешку.

— Разрешите вас спросить, сэр, — обратился он к мистеру Пиквику, который был весьма озадачен этой неучтивой интермедией, — разрешите вас спросить, принадлежит ли этот человек к вашей компании?

Slanter had come to Jair's aid in an act of bravery that the Valeman still found mystifying-an act not at all in character for a fellow as opportunistic and self-centered as Slanter-and look what had happened.
Приятного мало. Да еще этот случай у Топи. Как гном отважно бросился на выручку Джайру! Слантер ведь не из тех, кто себя забудет ради других. И опять же, что получилось?
