Turn the carriage quickly, coachman, and drive home.
The coachman explained as well as he was able; and they rode onward.
He was the coachman of the fiacre which drove the royal family from the Carrousel to the Porte Saint-Martin.
Other public edifices include the county buildings in the Tudor style, in front of which stands the monument to George, 8th marquess of Tweeddale (1787-1876), who was such an expert and enthusiastic coachman that he once drove the mail from London to Haddington without taking rest; the corn exchange, next to that of Edinburgh the largest in Scotland; the town house, with a spire 150 ft.
The coachman made no answer, but drove onward.
But neither Anna Mikhaylovna nor the footman nor the coachman, who could not help seeing these people, took any notice of them.
It was an autumn night, so dark that the coachman could not see the carriage pole.
But where do you come from not to know what every coachman in the town knows?
The coachman who had driven the old prince to town returned bringing papers and letters for Prince Andrew.
Peter the footman made some remark to the coachman; the latter assented.
"You go ahead, Zakhar!" shouted Nicholas to his father's coachman, wishing for a chance to race past him.
The doctors were of use to Natasha because they kissed and rubbed her bump, assuring her that it would soon pass if only the coachman went to the chemist's in the Arbat and got a powder and some pills in a pretty box for a ruble and seventy kopeks, and if she took those powders in boiled water at intervals of precisely two hours, neither more nor less.
His coachman did not even ask whether he was to wait.
And my coachman has gone.
A coachman in a jerkin, who stood nearest, sprang forward and snatched it up.
His satellites--the senior clerk, a countinghouse clerk, a scullery maid, a cook, two old women, a little pageboy, the coachman, and various domestic serfs--were seeing him off.
The coachman was asleep.
Alpatych collected his parcels, handed them to the coachman who had come in, and settled up with the innkeeper.
Alpatych, his coachman, Ferapontov's wife and children and the house porter were all sitting in the cellar, listening.
Alpatych went back to the house, called the coachman, and told him to set off.
Inside the shed Alpatych and the coachman arranged the tangled reins and traces of their horses with trembling hands.
At the moment when Rostov and Ilyin were galloping along the road, Princess Mary, despite the dissuasions of Alpatych, her nurse, and the maids, had given orders to harness and intended to start, but when the cavalrymen were espied they were taken for Frenchmen, the coachman ran away, and the women in the house began to wail.
As they drove along he shuddered and exclaimed several times so audibly that the coachman asked him:
Idiot! shouted Pierre, abusing his coachman--a thing he rarely did.
On reaching home Pierre gave orders to Evstafey--his head coachman who knew everything, could do anything, and was known to all Moscow--that he would leave that night for the army at Mozhaysk, and that his saddle horses should be sent there.
Every house in Mozhaysk had soldiers quartered in it, and at the hostel where Pierre was met by his groom and coachman there was no room to be had.
Pierre's coachman shouted angrily at the convoy of wounded to keep to one side of the road.
The groom, the coachman, and the innkeeper told Pierre that an officer had come with news that the French were already near Mozhaysk and that our men were leaving it.
Efim, the old coachman, who was the only one the countess trusted to drive her, sat perched up high on the box and did not so much as glance round at what was going on behind him.
But the coachman could not stop, for from the Meshchanski Street came more carts and carriages, and the Rostovs were being shouted at to move on and not block the way.
The superintendent of police, who had gone that morning by Count Rostopchin's orders to burn the barges and had in connection with that matter acquired a large sum of money which was at that moment in his pocket, on seeing a crowd bearing down upon him told his coachman to stop.
The superintendent of police turned round at that moment with a scared look, said something to his coachman, and his horses increased their speed.
They were accompanied by a doctor, Prince Andrew's valet, his coachman, and two orderlies.
