¿Nos son bastante adictos nuestros lacayos para arriesgar su vida por nosotros?
Are our lackeys sufficiently devoted to us to risk their lives for us?
En efecto dijo Porthos , si nosotros no podemos ausentarnos del campamento, nuestros lacayos pueden dejarlo.
"Ay," said Porthos, "if we cannot leave the camp, our lackeys may."
Cuenta, pues, la historia, que antes que a la casa de placer o castillo llegasen, se adelantó el duque y dio orden a todos sus criados del modo que habían de tratar a don Quijote; el cual, como llegó con la duquesa a las puertas del castillo, al instante salieron dél dos lacayos o palafreneros, vestidos hasta en pies de unas ropas que llaman de levantar, de finísimo raso carmesí, y, cogiendo a don Quijote en brazos, sin ser oído ni visto, le dijeron: -Vaya la vuestra grandeza a apear a mi señora la duquesa.
The history informs us, then, that before they reached the country house or castle, the duke went on in advance and instructed all his servants how they were to treat Don Quixote; and so the instant he came up to the castle gates with the duchess, two lackeys or equerries, clad in what they call morning gowns of fine crimson satin reaching to their feet, hastened out, and catching Don Quixote in their arms before he saw or heard them, said to him, "Your highness should go and take my lady the duchess off her horse."
Como lo ha enfatizado Martin Wolf, la crisis financiera de 2008-2009 hizo que muchos votantes se enojaran -y con razón- con "los codiciosos plutócratas y sus lacayos en la política y los medios".
As Martin Wolf has emphasized, the 2008-2009 financial crisis made voters understandably angry at “greedy plutocrats and their lackeys in politics and media.”
Armaremos a los cuatro lacayos de pistolas y mosquetones; si se envía un ejército contra nosotros, libraremos batalla, y el superviviente, como ha dicho D'Artagnan, llevará la carta.
We will arm our four lackeys with pistols and musketoons; if they send an army out against us, we will give battle, and the survivor, as d’Artagnan says, will carry the letter."
