“Chester, I think you could do something with HER,” she broke out, but Mr. McKee only nodded in a bored way, and turned his attention to Tom.

  “I’d like to do more work on Long Island, if I could get the entry. All I ask is that they should give me a start.”

  “Ask Myrtle,” said Tom, breaking into a short shout of laughter as Mrs. Wilson entered with a tray. “She’ll give you a letter of introduction, won’t you Myrtle?”

  “Do what?” she asked, startled.

  “You’ll give McKee a letter of introduction to your husband, so he can do some studies of him.” His lips moved silently for a moment as he invented. “GEORGE B. WILSON AT THE GASOLINE PUMP, or something like that.”

  Catherine leaned close to me and whispered in my ear: “Neither of them can stand the person they’re married to.”

  “Can’t they?”

  “Can’t STAND them.” She looked at Myrtle and then at Tom. “What I say is, why go on living with them if they can’t stand them? If I was them I’d get a divorce and get married to each other right away.”

  “Doesn’t she like Wilson either?”

  The answer to this was unexpected. It came from Myrtle, who had overheard the question, and it was violent and obscene.

  “You see,” cried Catherine triumphantly. She lowered her voice again. “It’s really his wife that’s keeping them apart. She’s a Catholic, and they don’t believe in divorce.”

     "你瞧,"凯瑟琳得意洋洋地大声说,她又压低了嗓门,"使他们不能结婚的其实是他老婆。她是天主教徒,那些人是不赞成离婚的。"

  Daisy was not a Catholic, and I was a little shocked at the elaborateness of the lie.

    黛西并不是天主教徒,因此这个煞费苦心的谎言使我有点震惊。
