76 the old woman and the physician 老妇和医生

an old woman having lost the use of her eyes, called in a physician to heal them, and made this bargain with him in the presence of witnesses: 
一个老妇双目失明,她请来一个外科医生为她治疗,并且在 有人作证的情况下商定:

that if he should cure her blindness, he should receive from her a sum of money; but if her infirmity remained, she should give him nothing.
如果医生能治愈她的双眼,她就会给医 生一大笔钱:如果没有治愈,医生将得不到任何酬劳.

this agreement being made, the physician, time after time, applied his salve to her eyes, and on every visit took something away, stealing all her property little by little.  签订了这份协议后,这个外科医生一次又一次地给老妇涂眼药膏,他每次 来都要带走几样东西.渐渐地,他偷走了老妇所有的家当。
