Suddenly a pretty little portfolio dropped out of her hand and fell on the ground; she got into the carriage. The footman stooped down to pick the thing up, but I flew up quickly, picked it up and handed it to the lady, taking off my hat.
Вдруг хорошенький маленький портфельчик выскочил у ней из руки и упал на землю; она села; лакей нагнулся поднять вещицу, но я быстро подскочил, поднял и вручил даме, приподняв шляпу.

At last, after an agony of supplication and protestation, I got Dora to look at me, with a horrified expression of face, which I gradually soothed until it was only loving, and her soft, pretty cheek was lying against mine.
Наконец, после мучительных уговоров и просьб, я заставил Дору повернуть ко мне испуганное личико и постепенно успокоил ее, так что теперь это личико выражало только одну любовь, а прелестная нежная щечка прижалась к моей щеке.
