English term or phrase: Sa Majesté des Mouches

Je travaille actuellement depuis l'Argentine et j'aurais besoin de la traduction française de deux passages du livre Sa Majesté des Mouches de William Golding. Impossible ici de me procurer le livre et c'est assez urgent. Si l'un d'entre vous pouvait m'aider je lui en serais très reconnaissante.

Le premier passage se trouve dans le chapitre 2 et dit en anglais :
I agree with Ralph. We’ve got to have rules and obey them. After all, we’re not savages. We’re English and the English are best at everything. So we’ve got to do the right things.

J'ai trouvé la traduction suivante mais ne dispose pas de l'édition ni du numéro de page.
D'accord avec Ralph. Il nous faut des lois et de la discipline. Après tout, on n'est pas des sauvages. On est des Anglais, et les Anglais sont épatants en tout. Alors on doit se conduire comme il faut.

Le second passage est extrait du chapitre 12 :
I should have though that a pack of British boys – you’re all British, aren’t you? would have been able to put a better show than that I mean.

Pour celui-ci, impossible de trouver la traduction sur Internet.

Si jamais vous disposez de la version française, pourriez-vous m'indiquer l'édition ainsi que le numéro de page concerné ?

Merci d'avance pour votre aide.

Bien cordialement,

Asker: Thanks David and all of you, I closed the subject without grading as none answered my question which was not really a question involving translation skills anyways. It was indeed moved to the forum and was more appropriate there. Sorry about the inconvenience.
