Talk:The Count of Monte Cristo/Chapter 1

From Wikisource

This translation of Monte Cristo is superb, but I think I found an error nonetheless.

In Chapter 1 there is the following passage:

"What happened to him?" asked the owner, with an air of considerable resignation. "What happened to the worthy captain?"

It seems to me that the correct translation of "soulagé" here is "relief" rather than "resignation", or am I mistaken?

Thanks,

Nicky Brown.
