Here are the few problems that occurred in my translating of Hugh Miller's His First Day as a Quarry Boy. I hope very much to be enlightened by your opinions.
1. Does quarryboy means the same as quarry worker?
2.What is 'a life of labour and restraint'?Does it mean a life in which men work very hard?
3.What is 'a slim, loose-jointed boy' like? Does it mean that he is thin, tall and not solid?
'a slim, loose-jointed boy' - There's nothing here to say that he's tall.
