"I know that Shatov's wife has come back and has given birth to a child," Virginsky said suddenly, excited and gesticulating and scarcely able to speak distinctly.
- Я знаю, что к Шатову пришла жена и родила ребенка, - вдруг заговорил Виргинский, волнуясь, торопясь, едва выговаривая слова и жестикулируя.

Their masters would not dare to give such plain orders to Orcs, even if they knew so much themselves; they would not speak openly to them of the Ring: they are not trusty servants.
Не рискнули бы хозяева орков доверить им столь важную тайну, если б даже сами ее проведали. Нельзя с орками в открытую говорить о Кольце: ненадежные они рабы.
