亞當斯學院是一所好學校,男孩們在這所學校里寄讀。湯姆一整個星期都很努力。在一個春季的星期六,他決定做一些有趣的事情。

He asked his friend Jeff to go to the movie theater. "Sorry," Jeff answered. "I'm going to a concert."

他邀請自己的朋友杰夫跟他一起去電影院。“不好意思,”杰夫答道,“我打算去聽音樂會。”

So Tom asked Joe to go to the movies. But Joe's soccer team had a game.

所以湯姆又邀請了喬一起去電影院,但喬所在的足球隊有比賽。

Next, Tom went down the hall to Brad's room. Brad was reading a very large old book. "Hi, Brad," Tom said. "Are you reading a dictionary? It looks ancient."

接著,湯姆又去到布拉德的房間。布拉德正在閱讀一本又大又古老的書。“你好,布拉德,”湯姆說。“你在閱讀的是字典嗎?看起來好古老。”

No. This is called The Wealth of Adams County. It's about hidden gold in Adams County. It's more than a century old. It was published in 1870! Look, it even has the original cover on it.

“不,這本書叫《亞當斯縣的財富》。它講述的是藏在亞當斯縣的黃金,這本書已逾百年。這本書是1870年出版的!你看,連書的封面都這么古老。”

Tom asked, "Where did you get it?"

湯姆問道:“這本書是哪來的呀?”

It's from my dad's friend. He is a nice gentleman, an officer in the army, answered Brad.

“這是我爸爸朋友的書。他是個翩翩君子,還是個軍官呢。”布拉德回答說。

The gold doesn't really exist, does it? Tom asked.

“書里講的黃金是不存在的對吧?”湯姆問道。

I don't know, but maybe! There are clues to it in this book. Let's find it! Looking for gold sounded like fun.

“我也不知道,但也有可能是真的!這本書里有很多關于這批黃金的線索,我們一起找找看吧!”尋找黃金聽起來還挺有趣的。

The first clue was to find a flat tree underground. "It must be in the forest," Tom said.

書中的第一個線索是要找到一顆神秘的平頂樹。“那肯定是在森林里。”湯姆說道。

Brad said, "The flat tree could be a board under the dirt. It could cover the gold."

布拉德接著說:“這棵平頂樹也可能是埋在土里的木板,用來蓋住這些黃金。”
