    I have to do a translation piece for university from German into English and it's a snippet from The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde.
    One of the sentences that I do not know how to translate is:

    "Danach wurde es nie wieder bei irgend einem nächtlichen Unternehmen gesehen."

    Any help and explanation would be wonderful, thank you :)
