请问是什么名字 

When Pat was twenty-one years old, he began to work in a small office in a city. At first he never travelled anywhere, but then he became a little more important, and he began to go to other cities for a few days to do some work there. Of course, he stayed in small hotels, when he was away from his home, but he did not know very much about living in hotels at first.
帕特21岁的时候,他开始在一个城市的一家小办事处工作。一开始,他从来都不去任何地方旅行,但后来,他变得重要了一些,就开始去其他城市呆上几天,在那儿干些工作。当然,他离家在外的时候,住在小旅馆里,但是一开始,他对在旅馆住懂得不多。

One evening when he was staying in a small hotel in Sheffield, he came back from the office and said tot he clerk in the hotel, “Good evening. Did any letters come for me today, please?”
一天晚上,他住在谢菲尔德一家小旅馆的时候,他从办事处回来对旅馆的职员说:“晚上好。请问今天有我的来信吗?”

The clerk was busy, but when he finished his work, he went to a big pile of letters and said, “What name, please?”
职员很忙,但是等他忙完,就走到一大堆信件前说:“请问是什么名字?”

“Well,” answered Pat, “the name will be on the letters.”
“哦,”帕特回答,“名字都在信上。”
