Years ago the passage had been white-washed and plastered, but rats had torn holes in the plaster and human beings had mutilated the whitewash with scrawls and pencilled names.
Много лет назад коридор был оштукатурен и побелей, но крысы прогрызли дыры в штукатурке, а люди изуродовали побеленные стены надписями.

Whitcross is no town, nor even a hamlet; it is but a stone pillar set up where four roads meet: whitewashed, I suppose, to be more obvious at a distance and in darkness.
Уиткросс - не город, даже не деревня: это всего лишь каменный столб, поставленный на перекрестке четырех дорог и выбеленный мелом, вероятно, для того, чтобы быть более приметным на расстоянии и в темноте.

The Kyrie Eleisons rang quiveringly through that sort of whitewashed stable with flat ceiling and bedaubed beams.
«Kyrie, eleison» трепетно прозвучало в этом жалком строении, напоминавшем сарай с оштукатуренными стенами и плоским потолком, на котором виднелись выбеленные балки.

The yellow-curtained bed, the walnut chest of drawers, and the three straw-bottomed chairs seemed lost below that lofty ceiling with whitewashed joists.
Кровать, затянутая желтым пологом, комод орехового дерева, три соломенных стула – все это терялось под высоким потолком, державшимся на оштукатуренных балках.

Reading the platitudes in Dwoskin's text he found himself fiercely and unpredictably defensive of the old man's foibles, as though everything that had made him unique-made him real-now stood in danger of being whitewashed away.
Читая пошлости творения Двоскина, он обнаружил, что и сам яростно и неожиданно защищает слабости старика, хотя все, что делало его уникальным – и вообще реальным, — теперь находилось под угрозой полного исчезновения.
