barely 的意思

以下抄自”to kill a mockingbird”

The doors of the Radley house were closed on weekdays as well as Sundays, and Mr. Radley's boy was not seen again for fifteen years.

But there came a day, barely within Jem's memory, when Boo Radley was heard from and was seen by several people, but not by Jem. He said Atticus never talked much about the Radleys: when Jem would question him Atticus's only answer was for him to mind his own business and let the Radleys mind theirs, they had a right to; but when it happened Jem said Atticus shook his head and said, "Mm, mm, mm."

So Jem received most of his information from Miss Stephanie Crawford, a neighborhood scold, who said she knew the whole thing. According to Miss Stephanie, Boo was sitting in the livingroom cutting some items from The Maycomb Tribune to paste in his scrapbook. His father entered the room. As Mr. Radley passed by, Boo drove the scissors into his parent's leg, pulled them out, wiped them on his pants, and resumed his activities.

我的問題是barely within Jem's memory這句子的意思

有二本翻譯書是翻譯為:吉姆清清楚楚的記得這事

另網路上有人翻譯為: 可是有那麼一天,就在吉姆剛記事的時候,有幾個人聽見看見了怪人

但我查字典似乎應翻譯為:吉姆僅勉強的記得這事

有請英文達人指正

謝謝

    barely通常是指"幾乎沒有", 所以在這裡是指"幾乎不在Jem的記憶裡",

    也就是"Jem幾乎不記得那個日子". 我沒看過這本書, 也不知道Jem的年齡,

    所以無法判斷能否翻譯成"Jem剛記事的時候", 如果他那時年齡非常小,

    這樣翻譯也合理.
