《劳拉》-123页

  在劳拉骚乱的生活中唯一的好事就是疟疾没有复发。  
  那天晚上她们坐在客厅,艾德拉肯定说:"我想给你看病的医生有误。说什么得了热病是会要人的命!我认识两个女人在非洲也得了热病,可是她俩都活到很老而且都子孙满堂。"   
  "那医生是很有学问的,"劳拉愁闷说。"以前他从来没有误诊过。"  
  "维吉利亚的医生能知道热带病是怎么回事?"艾德拉指责道。"那是什么想法呀。一个有殖民主义思想的医生。"   
  "亲爱的,现在叫美国佬是殖民者,"她丈夫轻轻指责道。   
  "殖民者,"她肯定重复道,"需要更好的医生,我会叫我们的可靠的医生给她检查的,我亲爱的。"   
  "不用了!"劳拉靠背坐着,强忍着,显示平静。"我的意思是,我不需要检查了。我感觉很好。"她不容许医生检查,如果她知道怀了孩子,就不会有那个想法了。也许,即使是在妊娠后很短的时间里,医生检查一下,就会发现的。她不懂医。  
  "亲爱的,随你了,"艾德拉温煦说。"可是检查一下是值得考虑的。"  
   "我会的,我答应你,"她发誓。   
  The one kindness in Nora's tumultuous life was that she had not been revisited by the fever.
  "I think your doctor is wrong," Edna said firmly while they were sitting in the parlor late at night. "To tell you the fever is fatal! I have known two women who contracted it in Africa, and both lived to ripe old ages and had large families."
  "Our physician is very knowledgeable," Nora said sadly. "He has never been wrong before."
  "And what does a Virginia physician know of tropical diseases?" Edna harrumphed. "The very idea. A colonial doctor." 
  "Dear, the colonies are now called America," her husband chided gently.  
  "The colonies," she repeated firmly, "need better physicians I shall have our own dear physician examine you, my dear."  
  "No!" Nora sat back and forced herself to appear calm. "I mean, I do not need examination. I feel fine." She could not allow a doctor to examine her, when she had no idea if she was with child. Perhaps a physician might have ways of discovering it even this soon after conception. She knew nothing of medicine.  
  "As you wish, dear," Edna said gently. "But it is worth thinking about."   
 "And I shall, I promise you," she vowed.
