一种好的英文读物,不知道对大家有没有帮助(续)

‘It's me! Jery,Jerry Cruncher,from Tellson's Bank,sir,'cried the man on the horse.

‘What’s the matter ,Jerry?’called Mr Lorry.

‘A message for you,Mr Lorry.You've got to wait at Dover for a young lady.’

‘Very well,Jerry,'said Mr Lorry. ‘Tell then my answer is CAME BACK TO LIFE.'

It was a strang message,and a stranger answer.No one in the coach understood what they meant.

The next day Mr Lorry was sitting in his hotel in Dover when a young lady arrived.She was preety,with golden hair and blue eyes,and Mr Lorry remembered a small child,almost a baby.he had carried her in his arms when he came from Calais to Dover,from France to England,many years ago.Mr Lorry asked the young lady to sit down.

‘ Miss Manette,'he said.‘I have a strange story to tell you,about one of the customers of Tellson's Bank.That's where I work.'

‘Yes,but I don't quite understand,Mr Lorry,'said the young lady.‘I received a message from Tellson'Bank,asking me to come here to meet you.I understood there was some news about my poor father's money.He died so long ago-before I was bron.What is this story you want to tell me ?'

‘About twenty years ago,Miss Manette,a French doctor married an English lady.They had a daughter,but just before she was born,her father disappeared.Nobody knew what had happened to him.Not long afterwards his unhappy wife died,and their daughter was brought back to England.'

“是我!杰里,杰里。克拉彻,从台尔森银行来的,先生,”马上的人喊道。

“什么事,杰里?”劳里先生问道。

“捎个信儿给您,劳里先生,您得在多佛等候一位年轻的女士。”

“好吧,杰里,”劳里先生说。“告诉他们,就说我的答复是‘活过来’”。

口信是奇特的,而答复就更奇特了。马车上的人都有不明白他们在说什么。

第二天,劳里先生在多佛的旅馆里坐着时,来了一位年轻的女士。她很美,有一头金黄的头发和蓝色的眼睛,这让劳里先生想起了一个小孩儿,几乎是个婴儿。那是在很多年前,在人法国加莱去英国多佛的路上,他曾把她抱在怀里。劳里先生让这位年轻女士坐下来。

“马内特小姐,”他说道。“我有个离奇的故事要告诉你,是关于台尔森银行的一位顾客的。台尔森银行是我工作的地方。”

“好吧,但是我不太明白,劳里先生,”年轻的女士说。“我从台尔森银行接到口信,要我到这儿来见您。我知道一些有关我可怜的父亲的钱的事。他很早就已死了—还在我出生之前。您要告诉我的是什么故事呢?”

“大约20年前,马内特小姐,有位法国医生娶了一位英国女士。他们有了一个女儿,但是还在他们的女儿出生之前,这位父亲却失踪了。没有人知道他出了什么事。不久,他那位伤心的妻子也死了,他们的女儿被带回了英国。”
