2015-04-20    来源:网络    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

乔治·华盛顿(George Washington,1732年2月22日-1799年12月14日)[1] ,美国联邦党政治家,美国首任总统,被美国称为“国父”,美国独立战争大陆军总司令。

You may believe me, when I assure you in the most solemn manner that, so far from seeking this employment, I have used every effort in my power to avoid it, not only from my unwillingness to part with you and the family, but from a consciousness of its being a trust too great for my capacity; and I should enjoy more real happiness in one month with you at home that I have the most distant prospect of finding abroad; if my stay were to be seven times seven years. But as it has been a kind of destiny that has thrown me upon this service, I shall hope that has my undertaking it is designed to answer some good purpose...
当我以最庄严的方式向您保证时,希望您能相信我,我并没有去谋求这个职位;相反我始终竭尽全力去回避这个职位。这不仅是因为我不想与家人分离,也是因为我自觉难以胜任;恐怕我在异乡待上七七四十九年所寻求的快乐也比不上你我在家相守一个月所相守的快乐。可是,既然被委以重任是命中注定了的事,我只求接受这一重任是为了实现崇高的目的……

I shall rely confidently on that Providence which has heretofore preserved and been bountiful to me, not doubting but that I shall return safe to you in the fall. I shall feel no pain from the toil or danger of the campaign; my unhappiness will flow from the uneasiness I know you will feel from being left alone. I therefore beg that you will summon your whole fortitude, and pass your times agreeably as possible. Nothing will give me so much sincere satisfaction as to hear this, and to hear it from your own pen.
我祈求一直庇护着我的上帝,能够让我在今秋安然无让地回到你的身边。我不会因军营之中的种种磨炼和危险而感到痛苦,可是当我想到你独自一人在家为我感到不安的时候却常常忧心忡忡。正因如此,我希望你能够鼓足勇气,坚强地面对生活,要尽可能让自己快乐起来。如果能够收到你的亲笔来信,告诉我一切都好,那将是最令我感到安慰的事情。

George Washington
