Tumultuous applause followed but received an unexpected check, for the cot bed, on which the dress circle was built, suddenly shut up and extinguished the enthusiastic audience. Roderigo and Don Pedro flew to the rescue, and all were taken out unhurt, though many were speechless with laughter. The excitement had hardly subsided when Hannah appeared, with "Mrs. March's compliments, and would the ladies walk down to supper."

接下来响起了热烈的掌声,正当此时,那座用作花楼的帆布床突然折拢,把热情洋溢的观众压倒。罗德力戈和唐·佩德罗飞身前来抢救,众人虽然毫发无损,但全都笑得说不出话来。大家刚刚恢复神态,罕娜进来说:“马奇太太致以祝贺,并请女士们下来用餐。”

This was a surprise even to the actors, and when they saw the table, they looked at one another in rapturous amazement. It was like Marmee to get up a little treat for them, but anything so fine as this was unheard of since the departed days of plenty. There was ice cream, actually two dishes of it, pink and white, and cake and fruit and distracting french bonbons and, in the middle of the table, four great bouquets of hot house flowers.

大家一阵惊喜,连演员亦不例外。看到桌子上摆着的东西,她们高兴得互相对望,同时都感到十分奇怪。妈妈平时也会弄点吃的款待她们,不过自从告别了宽裕的日子以来,这样的好东西连听都没听说过。桌子上摆着雪糕--而且有两碟,一碟粉红色,一碟白色--还有蛋糕、水果和迷人的法式夹心糖,桌子中间还摆着四束美丽的温室鲜花!

It quite took their breath away, and they stared first at the table and then at their mother, who looked as if she enjoyed it immensely.

这情景使她们大为惊讶。她们看看饭桌,又看看自己的母亲,母亲也显得非常高兴。
