Can it be said that, at that specific point in time, it would be of any benefit to the Government to sponsor the murder of "H", a famous actor, knowing that that could tarnish its image abroad?
И после этого кто-то говорит, что именно в такой момент правительство могло быть каким-то образом заинтересовано в заказном убийстве этого известного комедийного актера, прекрасно понимая, какие негативные последствия это может иметь за рубежом.

He was dressed in a shabby yellow Caucasian overcoat, with black velveteen cartridge pockets on the breast, and tarnish silver braid on all the seams; over his shoulder was slung a horn; in his sash was sticking a dagger.
Одет он был в желтый, истасканный архалук с черными плисовыми патронами на груди и полинялыми серебряными галунами по всем швам; через плечо висел у него рог, за поясом торчал кинжал.

Elizabeth also wept and was unhappy, but hers also was the misery of innocence, which, like a cloud that passes over the fair moon, for a while hides but cannot tarnish its brightness.
Элизабет тоже горевала и плакала; но и это были невинные слезы, горе, подобное тучке на светлом лике луны, которая затмевает его, но не пятнает.

The big copper pans hung neglected on the wall, their sheen already tarnishing, and the kitchen ranges under the giant chimney arch were filled with nothing but chilly ash ...
Огромные медные сковородки висели без дела, и их блеск постепенно начинал тускнеть, а в кухонной плите под гигантской аркой камина мирно покоился давно остывший пепел…
