    At first, he seemed surprised by my question.

    I had some difficulty at first recalling why we were there.

    at first = initially

    當副詞性質的「述部修飾語」放到句子的主詞之前時,通常會加上逗號,表示修飾語「越位」(如上面的第一句)。但在該子句較短時,有時不加這個逗號(請比較下面第一、二句的後面子句)。

    I toyed with the idea of calling the police, but in the end I didn't.

    Benny thought the president was sincere and sensitive, but, in the end, that's what counts.
