Around the world in 80 days的問題

“Jean, if monsieur pleases,” replied the newcomer, “Jean Passepartout, a surname which has clung to me because I have a natural aptness for going out of one business into another. I believe I’m honest, monsieur, but, to be outspoken, I’ve had several trades. I’ve been an itinerant singer, a circus-rider, when I used to vault like Leotard, and dance on a rope like Blondin. Then I got to be a professor of gymnastics, so as to make better use of my talents; and then I was a sergeant fireman at Paris, and assisted at many a big fire. But I quitted France five years ago, and, wishing to taste the sweets of domestic life, took service as a valet here in England. Finding myself out of place,

and hearing that Monsieur Phileas Fogg was the most exact and settled gentleman in the United Kingdom, I have come to monsieur in the hope of living with him a tranquil life, and forgetting even the name of Passepartout.”

想請問 the most exact and settled gentleman in the UK

這句怎麼解釋比較恰當呢 exact 跟settled的意思直接套挺生硬的

    我覺得 settled 應該翻

    安定的 或 成功的

    安定 是settled 的中翻

    成功 是因為如果說 the most settled 代表他在這領域或地方最長久

    也有成功的意味 或 解釋成 德高望重 看你覺得哪個比較合理

    exact 的話

    看一看 settled 也很有可能是 穩定的
