XII. 1. Translate the extract using a dictionary. 2. Entitle it. Say what Dr. Martin undertook to save the girl's life:
Mary was a child of seven or eight. Doctor Marlin found her lips and fingers blue, and her face pale. From time to time she made an effort to breathe deeply and coughed up much saliva with grayish specks.
It was, he considered, quinsy or diphtheria. Probably diphtheria. No time now for bacteriological examinations and many other clinical tests. The doctor was watching the girl nervously trying her pulse again and again.
Doctor Martin decided to get diphtheria antitoxin from me nearby town and asked the child's father to ring up the chemist's there.
Martin was waiting nervously looking at the child. Her hoarse breathing became terrible. Should he operate: cut into the larynx so that she might breathe? He had to do something. "Get a few hot towels and keep them around her neck," Martin said to the child's mother. At that moment the child's father appeared telling him that there was nobody at the chemist's. "Then listen. I am afraid this may be serious. I must get some antitoxin. I am going to drive to town myself. You continue these hot applications. And the room must be moister. So keep a little boiling water here. No use of medicine now. I'll be back soon."
