千金百分百片尾曲Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.On August 23rd comes a letter of some importance, respecting the kind of Missionaries wanted out there. This subject will recur from time to time in the course of[229] the correspondence; but even at so early a stage as this Miss Tucker seems to have clearly grasped what was and what was not required.1919年2月,在三年的分离之后,朱利叶斯.图灵先生回来了。然而,现在再想在艾伦面前重建威信,可不是那么容易的,艾伦已经可以轻松地顶嘴了。有一回,朱利叶斯叫他把鞋舌整理好,说鞋舌应该像烙饼一样平。艾伦立即反驳说,烙饼明明是卷的。艾伦如果有什么想法,他会习惯说「我知道」或者是「我早就知道」,比如说,他早就知道伊甸园的禁果不是苹果,而是李子。夏天时,图灵先生带他们到阿勒浦度假。阿勒浦在苏格兰遥远的西北地区。因为有钓鱼教练,所以这次豪华的假期令他们觉得非常愉快。朱利叶斯和约翰在钓鳟鱼,图灵夫人在画海湾的素描,而艾伦则在石楠花丛中自己玩耍。他想了一个收集蜂蜜的好主意,准备在野餐时泡茶。当蜜蜂嗡嗡飞过时,他就在观察它们的飞行路线,并用标出交会点,确定蜂巢的方位。那点脏乎乎的蜂蜜不算什么,但他的这种聪明,给朱利叶斯留下了深刻的印象。It is difficult to imagine a more exasperating condition of affairs than obtained in Washington while Lincoln was awaiting the day of inauguration. The government appeared to be crumbling away under the nerveless direction, or lack of direction, of President Buchanan and his associates. In his last message to Congress, Buchanan had taken the ground that the Constitution made no provision for the secession of States or for the breaking up of the union; but that it also failed to contain any provision for measures that could prevent such secession and the consequent destruction of the nation. The old gentleman appeared to be entirely unnerved by the pressure of events. He could not see any duty before him. He certainly failed to realise that the more immediate cause of the storm was the breaking down, through the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, of the barriers that had in 1820, and in 1850, been placed against the extension of slavery. He evidently failed to understand that it was his own action in backing up the infamous Lecompton Constitution, and the invasion of Kansas by the slave-owners, which had finally aroused the spirit of the North, and further that it was the influence of his administration which had given to the South the belief that it was now in a position to control for slavery the whole territory of the Republic.千金百分百片尾曲
