Give this letter to Michael Ilarionovich. * I have written that he should make use of you in proper places and not keep you long as an adjutant: a bad position!
The words passed along the lines and an adjutant ran to look for the missing officer.
And the commander, turning to look at the adjutant, directed his jerky steps down the line.
On returning from the review, Kutuzov took the Austrian general into his private room and, calling his adjutant, asked for some papers relating to the condition of the troops on their arrival, and the letters that had come from the Archduke Ferdinand, who was in command of the advanced army.
The regimental adjutant came in and confirmed the news brought by Zherkov.
The adjutant on duty, meeting Prince Andrew, asked him to wait, and went in to the Minister of War.
The adjutant by his elaborate courtesy appeared to wish to ward off any attempt at familiarity on the part of the Russian messenger.
His fertile mind instantly suggested to him a point of view which gave him a right to despise the adjutant and the minister.
"Take this and deliver it," said he to his adjutant, handing him the papers and still taking no notice of the special messenger.
Recalling his recent impressions, the first thought that came into his mind was that today he had to be presented to the Emperor Francis; he remembered the Minister of War, the polite Austrian adjutant, Bilibin, and last night's conversation.
But after it was over, the adjutant he had seen the previous day ceremoniously informed Bolkonski that the Emperor desired to give him an audience.
Yesterday's adjutant reproached him for not having stayed at the palace, and offered him his own house.
Entering the house, Prince Andrew saw Nesvitski and another adjutant having something to eat.
Bagration replied that he was not authorized either to accept or refuse a truce and sent his adjutant to Kutuzov to report the offer he had received.
On receiving the news he immediately dispatched Adjutant General Wintzingerode, who was in attendance on him, to the enemy camp.
Bonaparte's adjutant rode full gallop with this menacing letter to Murat.
Bonaparte's adjutant had not yet reached Murat's detachment and the battle had not yet begun.
A young officer with a bewildered and pained expression on his face stepped away from the man and looked round inquiringly at the adjutant as he rode by.
Behind Prince Bagration rode an officer of the suite, the prince's personal adjutant, Zherkov, an orderly officer, the staff officer on duty, riding a fine bobtailed horse, and a civilian--an accountant who had asked permission to be present at the battle out of curiosity.
He rode off at a walk to the right and sent an adjutant to the dragoons with orders to attack the French.
Turning to his adjutant he ordered him to bring down the two battalions of the Sixth Chasseurs whom they had just passed.
"He higher iss dan I in rank," said the German colonel of the hussars, flushing and addressing an adjutant who had ridden up, "so let him do what he vill, but I cannot sacrifice my hussars...
A moment later, an adjutant arrived with the same order.
I only sent you the note yesterday by Bolkonski--an adjutant of Kutuzov's, who's a friend of mine.
So far everything's all right, but I confess I should much like to be an adjutant and not remain at the front.
Should he go to headquarters next day and challenge that affected adjutant, or really let the matter drop, was the question that worried him all the way.
The day after the review, Boris, in his best uniform and with his comrade Berg's best wishes for success, rode to Olmutz to see Bolkonski, wishing to profit by his friendliness and obtain for himself the best post he could--preferably that of adjutant to some important personage, a position in the army which seemed to him most attractive.
One adjutant, nearest the door, was sitting at the table in a Persian dressing gown, writing.
While Prince Andrew went to report about the purple-faced general, that gentleman--evidently not sharing Boris' conception of the advantages of the unwritten code of subordination--looked so fixedly at the presumptuous lieutenant who had prevented his finishing what he had to say to the adjutant that Boris felt uncomfortable.
But this is what we'll do: I have a good friend, an adjutant general and an excellent fellow, Prince Dolgorukov; and though you may not know it, the fact is that now Kutuzov with his staff and all of us count for nothing.
Kutuzov looked sternly at his adjutant and, after a pause, replied: I think the battle will be lost, and so I told Count Tolstoy and asked him to tell the Emperor.
Nominally he is only an adjutant on Kutuzov's staff, but he does everything alone.
Seeing him, Kutuzov's malevolent and caustic expression softened, as if admitting that what was being done was not his adjutant's fault, and still not answering the Austrian adjutant, he addressed Bolkonski.
Prince Andrew, who was a little behind looking at them, turned to an adjutant to ask him for a field glass.
"Look, look!" said this adjutant, looking not at the troops in the distance, but down the hill before him.
The two generals and the adjutant took hold of the field glass, trying to snatch it from one another.
The French, who had ceased firing at this field strewn with dead and wounded where there was no one left to fire at, on seeing an adjutant riding over it trained a gun on him and fired several shots.
"The ammunition for the guns in position is exhausted, Your Majesty," said an adjutant who had come from the batteries that were firing at Augesd.
But at noon the adjutant of the regiment came into Rostov's and Denisov's dugout with a grave and serious face and regretfully showed them a paper addressed to Major Denisov from the regimental commander in which inquiries were made about yesterday's occurrence.
Boris lodged with another adjutant, the Polish Count Zhilinski.
During his service, chiefly as an adjutant, Prince Andrew had seen the anterooms of many important men, and the different types of such rooms were well known to him.
Prince Andrew for the second time asked the adjutant on duty to take in his name, but received an ironical look and was told that his turn would come in due course.
His father announced to him that he would now pay half his debts for the last time, but only on condition that he went to Moscow as adjutant to the commander-in-chief--a post his father had procured for him--and would at last try to make a good match there.
As the mazurka began, Boris saw that Adjutant General Balashev, one of those in closest attendance on the Emperor, went up to him and contrary to court etiquette stood near him while he was talking to a Polish lady.
But instead of that, at the next village the sentinels of Davout's infantry corps detained him as the pickets of the vanguard had done, and an adjutant of the corps commander, who was fetched, conducted him into the village to Marshal Davout.
"You are perfectly at liberty to treat me with respect or not," protested Balashev, "but permit me to observe that I have the honor to be adjutant general to His Majesty...."
A minute later the marshal's adjutant, de Castres, came in and conducted Balashev to the quarters assigned him.
This adjutant was also there and sat dozing on the rolled-up bedding, evidently exhausted by work or by feasting.
Prince Andrew's eyes were still following Pfuel out of the room when Count Bennigsen entered hurriedly, and nodding to Bolkonski, but not pausing, went into the study, giving instructions to his adjutant as he went.
Before Rostov had had time to consider and determine the distance of that firing, Count Ostermann-Tolstoy's adjutant came galloping from Vitebsk with orders to advance at a trot along the road.
An adjutant came out and announced that everything was in readiness within.
Kutuzov's adjutant whispered to Prince Andrew that this was the wife of the priest whose home it was, and that she intended to offer his Serene Highness bread and salt.
She's very pretty, added the adjutant with a smile.
The adjutant came out to the porch and asked Prince Andrew to lunch with him.
You see... but Boris did not finish, for at that moment Kaysarov, Kutuzov's adjutant, came up to Pierre.
The red-nosed Captain Timokhin, formerly Dolokhov's squadron commander, but now from lack of officers a battalion commander, shyly entered the shed followed by an adjutant and the regimental paymaster.
The adjutant in attendance came into the tent.
An adjutant accompanied by a Cossack passed by at a sharp trot.
The adjutant looked angrily at him, evidently also intending to shout at him, but on recognizing him he nodded.
"One moment, one moment!" replied the adjutant, and riding up to a stout colonel who was standing in the meadow, he gave him some message and then addressed Pierre.
But the adjutant turned his horse about and rode on.
Pierre was about to ask, but seeing the stern expression of the adjutant who was also looking that way, he checked himself.
Pierre did not find his groom and rode along the hollow with the adjutant to Raevski's Redoubt.
Pierre and the adjutant dismounted and walked up the hill on foot.
"Is the general here?" asked the adjutant on reaching the knoll.
The adjutant looked at Pierre as if puzzled what to do with him now.
Pierre went to the battery and the adjutant rode on.
The adjutant asked whether Napoleon wished the troops to cross it?
In the middle of the day Murat sent his adjutant to Napoleon to demand reinforcements.
"Reinforcements?" said Napoleon in a tone of stern surprise, looking at the adjutant--a handsome lad with long black curls arranged like Murat's own--as though he did not understand his words.
The handsome boy adjutant with the long hair sighed deeply without removing his hand from his hat and galloped back to where men were being slaughtered.
The adjutant bent his head affirmatively and began to report, but the Emperor turned from him, took a couple of steps, stopped, came back, and called Berthier.
The adjutant galloped to Claparede's division and a few minutes later the Young Guards stationed behind the knoll moved forward.
Soon after the duke's departure--before he could possibly have reached Semenovsk--his adjutant came back from him and told Kutuzov that the duke asked for more troops.
But he sent an adjutant to take the news round the army.
Adjutant General Wolzogen, the man who when riding past Prince Andrew had said, "the war should be extended widely," and whom Bagration so detested, rode up while Kutuzov was at dinner.
The adjutant, having obeyed this instruction, approached Prince Andrew.
"Lie down!" cried the adjutant, throwing himself flat on the ground.
The smoking shell spun like a top between him and the prostrate adjutant, near a wormwood plant between the field and the meadow.
"Sire?" asked the adjutant who had not heard the remark.
For instance, on the twenty-eighth it is suggested to him to cross to the Kaluga road, but just then an adjutant gallops up from Miloradovich asking whether he is to engage the French or retire.
"I did not expect this," said he to his adjutant Schneider when the latter came in late that night.
"The count had a sty," replied the adjutant smiling, "and was very much upset when I told him people had come to ask what was the matter with him.
"Well, they say," continued the adjutant with the same smile, "that the countess, your wife, is preparing to go abroad.
'From whom did you get it?' and so on till he reached Vereshchagin, a half educated tradesman, you know, 'a pet of a trader,' said the adjutant smiling.
"Not at all," rejoined the adjutant in dismay.
The superintendent of police, whom the crowd had stopped, went in to see him at the same time as an adjutant who informed the count that the horses were harnessed.
In a neighboring hut lay Raevski's adjutant with a fractured wrist.
She was listening to the ceaseless moaning of the adjutant, three houses off.
Through the open window the moans of the adjutant could be heard more distinctly.
The shouting in the tavern had died down; only the moaning of the adjutant was heard.
Prince Kutuzov's adjutant has brought me a letter in which he demands police officers to guide the army to the Ryazan road.
But at that moment an adjutant entered and reported something to Davout.
Davout brightened up at the news the adjutant brought, and began buttoning up his uniform.
When the adjutant reminded him of the prisoner, he jerked his head in Pierre's direction with a frown and ordered him to be led away.
He turned his head and saw that the adjutant was putting another question to Davout.
In another moment Davout would have realized that he was doing wrong, but just then the adjutant had come in and interrupted him.
The adjutant, also, had evidently had no evil intent though he might have refrained from coming in.
And the adjutant galloped through the forest after Grekov.
"Will there be any orders, your honor?" he asked Denisov, holding his hand at the salute and resuming the game of adjutant and general for which he had prepared himself, "or shall I remain with your honor?"
And turning to his men he directed a party to go on to the halting place arranged near the watchman's hut in the forest, and told the officer on the Kirghiz horse (who performed the duties of an adjutant) to go and find out where Dolokhov was and whether he would come that evening.
Tone, who accompanied it as "Adjutant-general Smith," had the greatest contempt for the seamanship of the French sailors, which was amply justified by the disastrous result of the invasion.
