Traduzione in inglese URGENTE!!!?

Chi potrebbe tradurmi in inglese questo aneddoto?

"Era il 1882 quando Wilde intraprese un lungo viaggio attraverso il Canada e gli Stati Uniti, dove avrebbe dovuto tenere una serie conferenze sull’estetismo e sull’arte nelle maggiori città nord americane.

E’ già un campione di eccentricità, se ne va in giro vestito con abiti di velluto e con camicie di seta, porta i capelli lunghi con i boccoli, e troverà estremamente disdicevole il fatto che un barbiere di New York sia sprovvisto del ferro per arricciare le sue chiome.

Ed è scenografico e teatrale il suo ingresso negli Stati Uniti, di fronte ad un attonito impiegato della dogana che gli pone la domanda di rito:

- Niente da dichiarare?

Oscar, flemmatico, risponde:

- I have nothing to declare except my genius."

    IT was in 1882 that Wilde began a long journey through Canada and the United States, where he was to hold a series of conferences on aesthetics and the arts in the major American cities.

    He was already a champion on eccentricity, going around dressed in velvet and silk skirts, wearing long locks and finding extremely unsuitable the fact that a New York barber's shop lacked the tool necessary to curl his hear.

    His appearance in the United States was showy and theatrical, when he faced a stunned custom official who asked him the usual question:

    "Nothing to declare"?

    Oscar phlegmatic answer was:

    "I have nothing to declare, except my genius".

    was 1882 when Wide undertook a long journey through canada and united states, where he was to hold a series of conferences about aestheticism and art in major North American city.

    He is already a eccentricity cha,pion, he goes around dressed in velvet suits and silk shirts, he has a long hair with curls , and he will find extremely regrettable that a barber in New York is devoid of iron to curl his hair.

    His entrance is spectacular in the usa, in front of an astonished clerk of the customs that begs the question of ritual:

    - Nothing to declare?

    Oscar, phlegmatic, he replied:

    ( non ho niente da dichiarare , eccetto il mio genio)
