Two days later, on the fifteenth of July, an immense number of carriages were standing outside the Sloboda Palace.
For the last three days Bogucharovo had lain between the two hostile armies, so that it was as easy for the Russian rearguard to get to it as for the French vanguard; Rostov, as a careful squadron commander, wished to take such provisions as remained at Bogucharovo before the French could get them.
After the Emperor had left Moscow, life flowed on there in its usual course, and its course was so very usual that it was difficult to remember the recent days of patriotic elation and ardor, hard to believe that Russia was really in danger and that the members of the English Club were also sons of the Fatherland ready to sacrifice everything for it.
During the three days preceding the occupation of Moscow the whole Rostov family was absorbed in various activities.
After the last two days spent in solitude and unusual circumstances, Pierre was in a state bordering on insanity.
The unaccustomed coarse food, the vodka he drank during those days, the absence of wine and cigars, his dirty unchanged linen, two almost sleepless nights passed on a short sofa without bedding--all this kept him in a state of excitement bordering on insanity.

Seven days had passed since Prince Andrew found himself in the ambulance station on the field of Borodino.

But a few days before they left Moscow, moved and excited by all that was going on, she called Sonya to her and, instead of reproaching and making demands on her, tearfully implored her to sacrifice herself and repay all that the family had done for her by breaking off her engagement with Nicholas.
The bustle and terror of the Rostovs' last days in Moscow stifled the gloomy thoughts that oppressed Sonya.

He passed four days in the coach house near the Crimean bridge and during that time learned, from the talk of the French soldiers, that all those confined there were awaiting a decision which might come any day from the marshal.
These first days, before the eighth of September when the prisoners were had up for a second examination, were the hardest of all for Pierre.
His physical strength and agility during the first days of his imprisonment were such that he seemed not to know what fatigue and sickness meant.
In a few days Princess Mary was ready to start.
"But two days ago this suddenly happened," said Natasha, struggling with her sobs.
The princess understood what Natasha had meant by the words: "two days ago this suddenly happened."
She now understood what had happened to him two days before.
When during those first days he remembered that he would have to die, he said to himself: Well, what of it?
His illness pursued its normal physical course, but what Natasha referred to when she said: "This suddenly happened," had occurred two days before Princess Mary arrived.

The partisan warfare flamed up most fiercely in the latter days of October.
Many have died these last days on the road or at the bivouacs.
Beyond Smolensk there were several different roads available for the French, and one would have thought that during their stay of four days they might have learned where the enemy was, might have arranged some more advantageous plan and undertaken something new.

The death, sufferings, and last days of Prince Andrew had often occupied Pierre's thoughts and now recurred to him with fresh vividness.
"Yes, in these days it would be hard to live without faith..." remarked Princess Mary.
Princess Mary, frowning in her effort to hold back her tears, sat beside Natasha, and heard for the first time the story of those last days of her brother's and Natasha's love.
And Pierre, his voice trembling continually, went on to tell of the last days of their retreat, of Karataev's illness and his death.
A few days previously Pierre had decided to go to Petersburg on the Friday.
She was going to say that to speak of love was impossible, but she stopped because she had seen by the sudden change in Natasha two days before that she would not only not be hurt if Pierre spoke of his love, but that it was the very thing she wished for.
