There was digging and ditching and yamplanting, and a dozen other things to be done, so we were busy enough all day; though in the evening we had a little time to ourselves.

Наконец его уговорили оторваться от окон «Короны» и пойти дальше, и, когда перед ними очутился дом, в котором квартировали Бейтсы, Эмма, вспомнив, что он накануне имел намерение посетить их, спросила, состоялся ли визит.
