The Pathfinder had named Mabel as the arbiter because he admired her, and because, in his eyes, rank had little or no value; but Lieutenant Muir shrank at such a reference in the presence of the wives of the officers.
Следопыт предложил Мэйбл в арбитры потому, что восхищался ею и общественное положение ничего — или почти ничего — не значило в его глазах. Но лейтенант Мюр внутренне поежился от этого предложения, сделанного в присутствии офицерских дам.

He sweated walking in the hot sun and he saw many officers, officers' wives, and officers' children.
Шагая по жаре, он вспотел. То и дело ему попадались на глаза офицеры, офицерские жены и офицерские дети.

It would be a dangerous precedent for us to allow pensions to the wives of these sailors, for it would deprive the others of all motive for laying their money by, and would indirectly encourage vice and dissipation."
Мы не можем назначить пенсии женам умерших матросов, потому что это создаст опасный прецедент и лишит их товарищей всякого желания откладывать деньги на черный день, а значит, косвенным образом явится поощрением порока и распущенности.

He thought of all the married shepherds he had known. They had a difficult time convincing their wives that they had to go off into distant fields.
Юноша шел, припоминая, каких трудов стоило многим его знакомым пастухам убедить жен, что они не могут обойтись без далеких пастбищ.

Half the stories rely on people not recognizing their servants or wives because they've got a tiny mask on!
В половине историй все держится на том, что человек не узнает собственную жену или служанку просто потому, что та надела крохотную маску!

I admire their wives, for the valiant efforts they make to transport Keokuk to Venice, and their children already speak Italian like little Venetians.
Жены их молодцы, они мужественно делают вид, будто живут не в Венеции, а у себя в Киокаке, штат Айова, а дети уже болтают по-итальянски, как маленькие венецианцы.

Much otherwise incomprehensible conflict — between generations, between parents and children, between husbands and wives — can be traced to differential responses to the acceleration of the pace of life.
Причины большей части иначе непостижимых конфликтов — между поколениями, между родителями и детьми, между мужьями и женами — можно найти в разных реакциях на ускорение темпа жизни.

When his beautiful young wives drew up in a row before him, he walked round them, kissed each one of them, and said: 'That is all that I am equal to giving you.'
Когда его молодые красивые жены выстроились перед ним в шеренгу, он обошел их, поцеловал каждую и сказал: "Вот и всё, что я теперь в состоянии дать вам".

Initially several of the wives in the village taught the children, but now there were full-time teachers who were also financed by the diaspora or the Lachin authorities.
В первое время детей обучали жены жителей села, однако в настоящее время в ней работают штатные учителя, которые также получают деньги либо от диаспоры, либо от властей Лачина.

Two years ago I came upon this road, following the buffalo, that my wives and children might have their cheeks plump and their bodies warm.
Два года назад я подошел к этой дороге, следуя за бизонами, чтобы у моих жен и детей щеки были округлы, а тела теплы.

If you were too nice to young husbands, their wives said you were fast and you got a bad reputation and never caught any beaux of your own.
Стоит проявить хоть чуточку расположения к молодым женатым мужчинам, как их жены немедленно объявят вас нахальной кокеткой, репутация ваша погибла и вам не видать женихов как своих ушей.

A venerable bishop once said to me: 'One of your wives was lame, but the other was too light-footed.' He he!

She laughed boisterously, and Neil thought that it was less the horrors of Snood than the pleasantries of wives like Vestal that would make him join forever that "clown of a nigger preacher," Evan Brewster.
Она весело захохотала, и Нийл подумал, что шуточки таких жен, как Вестл, скорее, чем вся мерзость Снуда, могут побудить его навсегда уйти к "черномазому шуту-проповеднику" Ивену Брустеру.
