They would think I was mad. Take care! What else could they do? On me croirait fou. PARA 2 El tormento de su mente era penoso de ver. PARA 2 His pain of mind was most pitiable to see. It was the mental torture of a conscientious man, oppressed beyond endurance by an unintelligible responsibility involving life. Why not tell me how it could be averted,—if it could have been averted?
If it came, on those two occasions, only to show me that its warnings were true, and so to prepare me for the third, why not warn me plainly now? And I, Lord help me! A mere poor signal-man on this solitary station! Why not go to somebody with credit to be believed, and power to act? Et pourquoi moi, mon Dieu?
Therefore, setting aside all question of reality or unreality between us, I represented to him that whoever thoroughly discharged his duty must do well, and that at least it was his comfort that he understood his duty, though he did not understand these confounding Appearances. In this effort I succeeded far better than in the attempt to reason him out of his conviction.
He became calm; the occupations incidental to his post as the night advanced began to make larger demands on his attention: and I left him at two in the morning. Tampoco veo motivo para ocultar que no me gustaban las dos coincidencias del accidente y de la muerte de la joven. PARA 5 That I more than once looked back at the red light as I ascended the pathway, that I did not like the red light, and that I should have slept but poorly if my bed had been under it, I see no reason to conceal.
Nor did I like the two sequences of the accident and the dead girl. I see no reason to conceal that either. Pourquoi ne pas avouer cela aussi? PARA 6 But what ran most in my thoughts was the consideration how ought I to act, having become the recipient of this disclosure?
I had proved the man to be intelligent, vigilant, painstaking, and exact; but how long might he remain so, in his state of mind?
Though in a subordinate position, still he held a most important trust, and would I for instance like to stake my own life on the chances of his continuing to execute it with precision?
Could not tell you whether it is erroneous or not. PARA 7 Unable to overcome a feeling that there would be something treacherous in my communicating what he had told me to his superiors in the Company, without first being plain with himself and proposing a middle course to him, I ultimately resolved to offer to accompany him otherwise keeping his secret for the present to the wisest medical practitioner we could hear of in those parts, and to take his opinion. A change in his time of duty would come round next night, he had apprised me, and he would be off an hour or two after sunrise, and on again soon after sunset.
I had appointed to return accordingly. The sun was not yet quite down when I traversed the field-path near the top of the deep cutting. PARA 9 Before pursuing my stroll, I stepped to the brink, and mechanically looked down, from the point from which I had first seen him. I cannot describe the thrill that seized upon me, when, close at the mouth of the tunnel, I saw the appearance of a man, with his left sleeve across his eyes, passionately waving his right arm.
PARA 10 The nameless horror that oppressed me passed in a moment, for in a moment I saw that this appearance of a man was a man indeed, and that there was a little group of other men, standing at a short distance, to whom he seemed to be rehearsing the gesture he made.
The Danger-light was not yet lighted. Against its shaft, a little low hut, entirely new to me, had been made of some wooden supports and tarpaulin.
It looked no bigger than a bed. PARA 11 With an irresistible sense that something was wrong,--with a flashing self-reproachful fear that fatal mischief had come of my leaving the man there, and causing no one to be sent to overlook or correct what he did,--I descended the notched path with all the speed I could make. PARA 12 — Que se passe-t-il? PARA
