Она подсела к мужу и, дождавшись, что он остался в дураках, сказала ему: "Ну,пышка довольно!

Чтобы еврей сам платил себе — нечестно, так как это все равно, что надуть своего хозяина; да и неразумно, ибо это значит остаться в дураках; да и не по-христиански, так как это значит ограбить единоверца, чтобы обогатить еретика.
To suffer the Jew to pay himself would be dishonest, for it would be cheating my master; and unreasonable, for it were the part of a fool; and unchristian, since it would be plundering a believer to enrich an infidel.”
