Райля Салихова
Is it correct? The butler's dignity doesn't enable him to confess the failure he has done. Indeed, he didn't assume to the Mr Farraday that he was omniscent. Surely, he was decent and generous guy.

Hi, Райля Салихова! Looking only at the grammar, this is almost correct. The only grammatical mistake is that the last sentence should be: "Surely, he was a decent and generous guy" (with an "a" included). However, I'm fairly confident that "the" should not be in the second sentence. Instead, it ought to be: "Indeed, he didn't assume to Mr. Farraday that he was omniscient" (notice the change in spelling of the last word). The only reason to include "the" is if the narrator does not know who Mr. Farraday is. I hope my answer helps. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

1The butler's dignity did not allow him to admit his failures. 2Indeed, he did pretend to Mr Faraday that he was omniscent. 3Surely, he was decent and generous guy. I cannot understand this. In my opinion, 'indeed' requires "did", not "did not", so I changed it accordingly. Does 3 refer to the butler or Mr Faraday?
