I In Petersburg in the eighteen-forties a surprising event occurred. An officer of the Cuirassier Life Guards, a handsome prince who everyone predicted would become aide-de-camp to the Emperor Nicholas I. and have a brilliant career, left the service, broke off his engagement to a beautiful maid of honor, a favorite of the Empresss, gave his small estate to his sister, and retired to a monastery to become a monk.

One of the five young men, who was more discontented than any one else, both with himself and with the others, and who had been feeling all the evening a sense of disgust, took his hat, and went out noiselessly on purpose, intending to go home. There was no one in the ante-...
CHAPTER XVII After Anna Mikhylovna had driven off with her son to visit Count Cyril Vladmirovich Bezkhov, Countess Rostva sat for a long time all alone applying her handkerchief to her eyes. At last she rang. What is the matter with you, my dear? she said crossly to the maid who kept her waiting some minutes. Dont you wish to serve me? Then Ill find you another place. The countess was upset by her friends sorrow and humiliating poverty, and was therefore out of sorts, a state of mind which with her always found expression in calling her maid my dear and speaking to her with exaggerated politeness. I am very sorry, maam, answered the maid. Ask the count to come to me. The count came waddling in to see his wife with a rat...
