"Listen, dear Annette," said the prince, suddenly taking Anna Pavlovna's hand and for some reason drawing it downwards.
"Come over here, Helene, dear," said Anna Pavlovna to the beautiful young princess who was sitting some way off, the center of another group.
"Why no, my dear fellow," said the astonished narrator, shrugging his shoulders.
"But, my dear Monsieur Pierre," said she, "how do you explain the fact of a great man executing a duc--or even an ordinary man who--is innocent and untried?"
"I rely on you, my dear," said Anna Pavlovna, also in a low tone.
Never, never marry, my dear fellow!
No, don't marry, my dear fellow; don't marry! concluded Prince Andrew.
"What would you have, my dear fellow?" answered Pierre, shrugging his shoulders.
Women, my dear fellow; women!
Dear Countess, what an age...
"What a nice figure the policeman must have cut, my dear!" shouted the count, dying with laughter.
"But do you know, my dear, that was a capital joke," said the count; and seeing that the elder visitor was not listening, he turned to the young ladies.
"Tell me, my dear," said she to Natasha, "is Mimi a relation of yours?
"Ah yes, my dear," said the count, addressing the visitor and pointing to Nicholas, "his friend Boris has become an officer, and so for friendship's sake he is leaving the university and me, his old father, and entering the military service, my dear.
Our dear countess was too clever with Vera, said the count.
"Ah, my dear," said the countess, "my life is not all roses either.
He said to me, 'I am sorry I can do so little for you, dear Princess.
"My dear Boris," said the mother, drawing her hand from beneath her old mantle and laying it timidly and tenderly on her son's arm, "be affectionate and attentive to him.
Remember that, my dear, and be nice to him, as you so well know how to be.
"My dear!" exclaimed his mother imploringly, again laying her hand on his arm as if that touch might soothe or rouse him.
"My dear," she said to her son, once more stimulating him by a touch, "you promised me!"
And how is our dear invalid? said she, as though unaware of the cold offensive look fixed on her.
"Would not such a meeting be too trying for him, dear Anna Mikhaylovna?" said he.
He sent for Pierre and said to him: My dear fellow, if you are going to behave here as you did in Petersburg, you will end very badly; that is all I have to say to you.
Oh dear, what am I thinking about?
The will will show that, my dear; our fate also depends on it.
"What is the matter with you, my dear?" she said crossly to the maid who kept her waiting some minutes.
"This is what I want, my dear fellow," said the count to the deferential young man who had entered.
"Well, my dear?" asked the countess.
"Don't you cry, Sonya, dear love, darling Sonya!" and she kissed her and laughed.
"Well, my dear?" said Prince Vasili, taking her hand and bending it downwards as was his habit.
"My dear Princess Catherine Semenovna," began Prince Vasili impatiently, "I came here not to wrangle with you, but to talk about your interests as with a kinswoman, a good, kind, true relation.
Our duty, my dear, is to rectify his mistake, to ease his last moments by not letting him commit this injustice, and not to let him die feeling that he is rendering unhappy those who...
Ah, my dear friend!
Anna Mikhaylovna, addressing a maid who was hurrying past with a decanter on a tray as "my dear" and "my sweet," asked about the princess' health and then led Pierre along a stone passage.
"Dear doctor," said she, "this young man is the count's son.
"But, my dear princess," answered Anna Mikhaylovna blandly but impressively, blocking the way to the bedroom and preventing the other from passing, "won't this be too much for poor Uncle at a moment when he needs repose?
Come, my dear Anna Mikhaylovna, let Catiche do as she pleases.
"I know, my dear, kind princess," said Anna Mikhaylovna, seizing the portfolio so firmly that it was plain she would not let go easily.
Dear princess, I beg and implore you, have some pity on him!
Pierre, my dear, come here.
Yes, my dear, this is a great loss for us all, not to speak of you.
I hope, my dear friend, you will carry out your father's wish?
Dear and precious Friend, How terrible and frightful a thing is separation!

"Ah, dear friend," replied Princess Mary, "I have asked you never to warn me of the humor my father is in.
No, my dear boy," he continued, "you and your generals won't get on against Buonaparte; you'll have to call in the French, so that birds of a feather may fight together.
She is quite a child: such a dear, merry child.
"My dear fellow, how are you?" said he through the singing, making his horse keep pace with the company.
Look here, my dear fellow, get from Kozlovski all the reports from our scouts.
"Ah, Bondarenko, dear friend!" said he to the hussar who rushed up headlong to the horse.
"Walk him up and down, my dear fellow," he continued, with that gay brotherly cordiality which goodhearted young people show to everyone when they are happy.
Dear me, can I have forgotten?
"You just wait a moment, my dear fellow, and listen," interrupted the staff captain in his deep bass, calmly stroking his long mustache.
It's not pleasant, but what's to be done, my dear fellow?
Oh, my dear fellow, we're in such a stew here these last two days.
Ah, my dear prince!
* "But my dear fellow, with all my respect for the Orthodox Russian army, I must say that your victory was not particularly victorious."
That's just it, my dear fellow.
Not only occupied, but Bonaparte is at Schonbrunn, and the count, our dear Count Vrbna, goes to him for orders.
"My dear fellow, you are a hero!" said Bilibin.
"Here is our dear Orthodox Russian army," thought Bolkonski, recalling Bilibin's words.
And we, my dear boy!
"Now then, Matvevna, dear old lady, don't let me down!" he was saying as he moved from the gun, when a strange, unfamiliar voice called above his head: "Captain Tushin!
"Good-bye, my dear fellow," said Tushin.
Good-bye, my dear fellow! and for some unknown reason tears suddenly filled his eyes.
Sit down, dear fellow, sit down!
"Thank you; you saved me, my dear fellow!" said Tushin.
My dear Helene, be charitable to my poor aunt who adores you.
He is such a worthy and excellent man, our dear Vyazmitinov....
Anna Pavlovna threatened him on behalf of "our dear Vyazmitinov," and in her eyes, which, for an instant, glanced at Pierre, Prince Vasili read a congratulation on his future son-in-law and on his daughter's happiness.
The old princess sighed sadly as she offered some wine to the old lady next to her and glanced angrily at her daughter, and her sigh seemed to say: "Yes, there's nothing left for you and me but to sip sweet wine, my dear, now that the time has come for these young ones to be thus boldly, provocatively happy."
How absent-minded you are, my dear fellow.
Are you going to remain as you are, dear princess? she began.
"No really, my dear, this dress is not pretty," said Lise, looking sideways at Princess Mary from a little distance.
"Come, dear princess," said Mademoiselle Bourienne, "just one more little effort."
"And didn't Hippolyte tell you?" asked Prince Vasili, turning to his son and seizing the little princess' arm as if she would have run away and he had just managed to catch her, "didn't he tell you how he himself was pining for the dear princess, and how she showed him the door?
Now tell me, my dear boy, are you serving in the Horse Guards? asked the old man, scrutinizing Anatole closely and intently.
So, my dear boy, you wish to serve the Tsar and the country?
"Ah, my dear, my dear!" he began, rising and taking her by both hands.
Decide, my dear, good, gentle Marie, whom I have always loved as a daughter!
My dear, I must tell you that this is a moment I shall never, never forget.
But, my dear, will you not give us a little hope of touching this heart, so kind and generous?
Well, so that's finished, my dear fellow!
"My dear friend?" said she, in a tone of pathetic inquiry, prepared to sympathize in any way.
Dear me, how you have changed!
Do go somewhere, anywhere... to the devil!" he exclaimed, and immediately seizing him by the shoulder and looking amiably into his face, evidently wishing to soften the rudeness of his words, he added, "Don't be hurt, my dear fellow; you know I speak from my heart as to an old acquaintance."
"Oh dear, what a beast I am!" muttered Rostov, as he read the letter.
Well, my dear fellow, so you still want to be an adjutant?
Ah, my dear fellow, what a battle we have gained!
And do you know, my dear fellow, it seems to me that Bonaparte has decidedly lost bearings, you know that a letter was received from him today for the Emperor.
You know I should be very glad to do all in my power both for you and for this dear young man.
"Well, how d'you do, my dear fellow?" said Dolgorukov, who was sitting at tea with Bilibin.
"My dear fellow," Nesvitski whispered to Prince Andrew, "the old man is as surly as a dog."
Go, my dear fellow, and see whether the third division has passed the village.
Kolya, * dear fellow...
"Dear me!" said Rostov.
"No matter at all, my dear count," she said, meekly closing her eyes.
"Ah, my dear friend, he is very unfortunate," she said.
Count Ilya Rostov, laughing and repeating the words, Make way, dear boy!
* Till tomorrow, my dear fellow.
"Princess, my dear, there's someone driving up the avenue!" she said, holding the casement and not closing it.
"Go, dear," said Princess Mary.
I know you understand Fedya, my dear count; that, believe me, is why I am so fond of you.
"My dear count, you were one of my best pupils--you must dance," said little Iogel coming up to Nicholas.
"No, my dear fellow, I'll be a wallflower," said Denisov.
Come here, dear! called the old countess from the drawing room.
"Dear me!" said his father, who was in a specially good humor.
"But if for reason you don't feel inclined to talk to me," said the old man, "say so, my dear sir."
"If He were not," he said quietly, "you and I would not be speaking of Him, my dear sir.
Look at your life, my dear sir.
There is nothing strange in that, my dear sir!
Where are you going to now, my dear sir?
The second pair of man's gloves he was to wear at the meetings, and finally of the third, a pair of women's gloves, he said: Dear brother, these woman's gloves are intended for you too.
And after a pause, he added: "But beware, dear brother, that these gloves do not deck hands that are unclean."
My dear fellow, what have you been up to in Moscow?
Remember, dear boy," and he drew Pierre's arm downwards, "it is simply a misunderstanding.
Let us write her a letter at once, and she'll come here and all will be explained, or else, my dear boy, let me tell you it's quite likely you'll have to suffer for it.
"My dear," said Princess Mary, addressing her brother from beside the cot where she was standing, "better wait a bit... later..."
"My dear, really... it's better not to wake him... he's asleep," said the princess in a tone of entreaty.
"Since the day of our brilliant success at Austerlitz," wrote Bilibin, "as you know, my dear prince, I never leave headquarters.
"My dear," he heard what seemed to him her despairing whisper behind him.
No... why not, my dear, why shouldn't I?
"But, dear me, that must be a fraud!" said Pierre, naively, who had listened attentively to the pilgrim.
My dear, what does it mean?... she asked, turning to Princess Mary.
The regiment was also a home, and as unalterably dear and precious as his parents' house.
"My dear," Princess Mary entering at such a moment would say, "little Nicholas can't go out today, it's very cold."
"Dear Brothers," he began, blushing and stammering, with a written speech in his hand, "it is not sufficient to observe our mysteries in the seclusion of our lodge--we must act--act!
Only excuse me, my dear fellow, I'll give you twenty thousand and a note of hand for eighty thousand as well.
They received Pierre in their small, new drawing-room, where it was impossible to sit down anywhere without disturbing its symmetry, neatness, and order; so it was quite comprehensible and not strange that Berg, having generously offered to disturb the symmetry of an armchair or of the sofa for his dear guest, but being apparently painfully undecided on the matter himself, eventually left the visitor to settle the question of selection.
Now you know, Count," she said to Pierre, "even our dear cousin Boris, who, between ourselves, was very far gone in the land of tenderness..."
"Well, dear heart," said he, "I wanted to tell you about it yesterday and I have come to do so today.
Yes, he's a dear, but very absurd.
Sorrow, it seems, is our common lot, my dear, tender friend Julie.
The first death I saw, and one I shall never forget--that of my dear sister-in-law--left that impression on me.
And what do you think, dear friend?
Good-bye, my dear friend.
My dear friend, Mademoiselle Bourienne, sends you kisses.
It was all dreadfully difficult and complicated; and he replied to his mother in cold, formal letters in French, beginning: "My dear Mamma," and ending: "Your obedient son," which said nothing of when he would return.
But you know, my dear boy, it's a pity you got excited!
"No, my dear boy" (the count, too, felt embarrassed.
"Milashka, dear!" rose Nicholas' triumphant cry.
Fetching water clear and sweet, Stop, dear maiden, I entreat--
"Go on, Uncle dear," Natasha wailed in an imploring tone as if her life depended on it.
"Good-bye, dear niece," his voice called out of the darkness--not the voice Natasha had known previously, but the one that had sung As 'twas growing dark last night.
Though she blamed herself for it, she could not refrain from grumbling at and worrying Sonya, often pulling her up without reason, addressing her stiffly as "my dear," and using the formal "you" instead of the intimate "thou" in speaking to her.
"Oh dear, what a young lady!" said Foka, pretending to frown at Natasha.
"That's right, my dear," chimed in the old count, thoroughly aroused.
Dear me! there's no recognizing them!
Dear me, there's a Circassian.
Really, how becoming it is to dear Sonya.
"My dear fellow, with our five hundred thousand troops it should be easy to have a good style," returned Count Rostopchin.
Good-bye, my dear fellow....
"Ah, my dear, I can't tell you how fond I have grown of Julie latterly," she said to her son.
"My dear," said Anna Mikhaylovna to her son, "I know from a reliable source that Prince Vasili has sent his son to Moscow to get him married to Julie.
"There, my dear princess, I've brought you my songstress," said the count, bowing and looking round uneasily as if afraid the old prince might appear.
"Dear me, Michael Kirilovich has grown still stouter!" remarked the count.
Dear count, you must let me look after your daughters!
Do come, dear countess, and give me this flower as a pledge!
"She's first-rate, my dear fellow, but not for us," replied Dolokhov.
No, this is really beyond anything, my dear count, said she to Count Rostov who had followed her in.
"Dear Princess," she wrote in French quickly and mechanically, and then paused.
What will Nicholas, dear noble Nicholas, do when he hears of it?
What a foot, my dear fellow!
"Troubles, troubles, my dear fellow!" he said to Pierre.
"We won't speak of it any more, my dear," said Pierre, and his gentle, cordial tone suddenly seemed very strange to Natasha.
We won't speak of it, my dear--I'll tell him everything; but one thing I beg of you, consider me your friend and if you want help, advice, or simply to open your heart to someone--not now, but when your mind is clearer think of me!
Oh, my dear general!
What companion, my dear boy?
"Dear me, how jolly we are!" said Rostov laughing.
"She really is a dear little thing," said Rostov to Ilyin, who was following him.
This foe confounding Thy land, desiring to lay waste the whole world, rises against us; these lawless men are gathered together to overthrow Thy kingdom, to destroy Thy dear Jerusalem, Thy beloved Russia; to defile Thy temples, to overthrow Thine altars, and to desecrate our holy shrines.
Dear one! she kept repeating, wiping away her tears with her fingers.
Poor dear, he's as white as a sheet!--various voices were heard saying.
Dear souls, dear kind souls!
"Your position is doubly terrible, dear princess," said Mademoiselle Bourienne after a pause.
Dear friend, I can do nothing.
Only, for God's sake, Princess dear, have them sent away and don't go out to them.
How do you do, my dear boy?
No, tell them to bring a small table out here, my dear boy.
I tell you once for all, my dear fellow," said he, "into the fire with all such things!
"Well, my dear, and how are we getting on?" he asked, moving to the door of the room assigned to him.
But believe me, my dear boy, there is nothing stronger than those two: patience and time, they will do it all.
* (2) "When in doubt, my dear fellow, do nothing."
Good-bye, my dear boy.
Oh, come, my dear count!
Go, my dear fellow, go... and Christ be with you!
"Yes, yes: go, dear boy, and have a look," he would say to one or another of those about him; or, "No, don't, we'd better wait!"
"Go, my dear fellow," he said to Ermolov, "and see whether something can't be done."
"Give me your hand," said he and, turning it over so as to feel the pulse, added: "You are not well, my dear fellow.
Well my dear child, you know how your father's heart rejoices to know that you...
But, my dear child, consult only your own heart.
It was taking place at the English Club and someone near and dear to him sat at the end of the table.
Good-bye, my dear fellow.
Countess dear... an officer came to me to ask for a few carts for the wounded.
You know, I think, my dear... let them be taken... where's the hurry?
You know how dear Vera wanted a chiffonier like that and how we had a dispute about it.
