    Default meet him

    Hola. ¿Qué significa "meet" en el siguiente texto?:
    I walked to the window and made some observation about the quietness of the street.
    "Yes, it is quite enough," he agreed, "if that be an advantage; still even on that score I think I might have secured a more desirable residence at a lower figure."
    We were on ground now where I felt I could meet him.
    Gracias por vuestra ayuda.

    Significa "ser igual"...osea que el y yo podemos hablar como iguales sobre este temo.

    Me pregunto si la palabra "quite" esta mal escrito. Se refiere al "the quietness of the street", no?

    Quiet y quite son palabras diferentes.

    Sí, vicente, tienes razón. Es "quiet", no "quite".
