infamy translated to French

En supposant que Fouqué imprime mon pamphlet posthume, ce ne sera qu’une infamie de plus.
Supposing that Fouque prints my posthumous pamphlet, it will be only an infamy the more.
Je lui dis que l'infamie d'une exécution publique devait peser plus lourdement sur les esprits d'un gentilhomme qu'aucune mortification qu'il pût rencontrer par delà la mer; qu'au moins dans l'autre cas il avait une chance de vivre, tandis que là il n'en avait point; que ce serait pour lui la chose la plus aisée du monde que de s'assurer d'un capitaine de navire, étant d'ordinaire gens de bonne humeur; et qu'avec un peu de conduite, surtout s'il pouvait se procurer de l'argent, il trouverait moyen de se racheter quand il arriverait en Virginie.
I told him the infamy of a public execution was certainly a greater pressure upon the spirits of a gentleman than any of the mortifications that he could meet with abroad could be; that he had at least in the other a chance for his life, whereas here he had none at all; that it was the easiest thing in the world for him to manage the captain of a ship, who were, generally speaking, men of good-humour and some gallantry; and a small matter of conduct, especially if there was any money to be had, would make way for him to buy himself off when he came to Virginia.
