CD13最後一句

Alice was only too glad to do so. 愛麗絲非常樂意這麼做

"too...to"结构之前带有"but,only,all,simply,just"时,该结构表示强烈的肯定意义,汉译为"非常/十分/实在/真是太……"等.eg:
They are but too glad to do so.他们非常喜欢这么做.
The patient was only too willing to be operated upon.病人非常愿意接受手术.
We are all too satisfied to take your advice.我们非常乐意接受你的建议.
We shall be simply too glad to help you.我们很乐意帮助你.
I am just too glad to help you.能帮你的忙,我真是太高兴了.
