Section A: Translate the following underlined part of the Chinese text into English
The former residence of John Strauss is situated on a big street, inside an old pink-colored four-story apartment building along the street. Strauss lived in two suites on the second floor of this building in which he composed from the end of 1866 to the beginning of 1867 the famous The Blue Danube Waltz. At that time he was already 42 years old and enjoyed a high reputation within the musical circle of Vienna. However, it was not until the composition of this melody that he became firmly established as the King of Waltz. The house in which he lived was not far away from the Danube River, which was within the reach of half an hour''s walk. At that time, there was a huge forest between the river and his house and Strauss would frequently go through the forest to have a walk by the side of the river. Now the forest has been replaced by rows and rows of densely adjacent houses and buildings, turning the place into noisy streets.

Though fond of many acquaintances, I desire an intimacy only with a few. The Man in Black, whom I have often mentioned, is one whose friendship I could wish to acquire, because he possesses my esteem. His manners, it is true, are tinctured with some strange inconsistencies, and he may be justly termed a humorist in a nation of humorists. Though he is generous even to profusion, he affects to be thought a prodigy of parsimony and prudence; though his conversation be replete with the most sordid and selfish maxims, his heart is dilated with the most unbounded love. I have known him profess himself a man-hater, while his cheek was glowing with compassion; and, while his looks were softened into pity, I have heard him use the language of the most unbounded ill-nature. Some affect humanity and tenderness, others boast of having such dispositions from Nature; but he is the only man I ever knew who seemed ashamed of his natural benevolence. He takes as much pains to hide his feelings, as any hypocrite would to conceal his indifference; but on every unguarded moment the mask drops off, and reveals him to the most superficial observer.
