Hola a todos. ¿Cómo se traduciría "I could meet him" en el texto siguiente?:
He had refilled and lighted his pipe by this time, and began smoking vigorously. 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.
"Val," I observed, "I have a fancy that when you bought this excellent practice and superior house of furniture, you were deceived by someone."
Gracias por vuestra ayuda.
