She went into the drawing-room and lighted the fire; then, picking up the cushions one by one, that Mary had disposed so carefully, she threw them back onto the chairs and the couches. That made all the difference; the room came alive at once. As she was about to throw the last one she surprised herself by suddenly hugging it to her, passionately, passionately. But it did not put on the fire in her bosom.
Oh, on the contrary! The windows of the drawing-room opened onto a balcony over-looking the garden. At the far end, against the wall, there was a tall, slender pear tree in fullest, richest bloom; it stood perfect, as though becalmed against the jade-green sky. Bertha couldn't help feeling even from this distance, that it had not a single bud or a faded petal. Down below, in the garden beds the red and yellow tulips, heavy with flowers seemed to lean upon the dusk. A grey cat dragging its belly crept across the lawn and a black one, its shadow, trailed after. The sight of them, so intent and so quick, gave Bertha a curious shiver. Really – really – she had everything. She was young. Harry and she were as much in love as ever, and they got on together splendidly. She had an adorable baby. They didn't have to worry about money. They had this ab­solutely satisfactory house and garden.

Exercise 3. Point out all the verbs. State whether they are transitive or intransitive; terminative, non-terminative or verbs of double lexical character. Translate into Russian.

He was waiting for us at the public house; and asked me how I found myself, like an old acquaintance. I did not feel, at first, that I knew him as well as he knew me, because he had never come to our house since the night I was born, and naturally he had the advantage of me.
