Nor has either Dounia or I breathed a word to him of the great hopes we have of his helping us to pay for your university studies; we have not spoken of it in the first place, because it will come to pass of itself, later on, and he will no doubt without wasting words offer to do it of himself, (as though he could refuse Dounia that) the more readily since you may by your own efforts become his right hand in the office, and receive this assistance not as a charity, but as a salary earned by your own work. I can’t understand the meaning of the words “(as though he could refuse Dounia that”) the more readily “. Especially,I cannot understand “Dounia that “,”the more readily”. What purpose are there the words “Dounia “and ”that”. Also, what do the words “the more readily” relate to? Please tell me it plainly. (1)

refuse Dounia that = refuse that to Dounia. "That" refers to "helping us to pay for your university studies".

the more readily since you may by your own efforts become his right hand in the office = he would offer his help more readily because, in addition to it making Dounia happy, he would also be investing in Rodion's future working for him.
