My father is dead.
Her father looks in at us morning and evening as he goes to and from his office, and sees her contentedly stringing her beads or making horizontal lines on her sewing-card, and exclaims, "How quiet she is!"

Prince Vasili's daughter, the beautiful Helene, came to take her father to the ambassador's entertainment; she wore a ball dress and her badge as maid of honor.
She knew his father to be a connection of Prince Vasili's.
"With my father and sister, remember," said Prince Andrew gently.
My father is right.
Anatole Kuragin's father managed somehow to get his son's affair hushed up, but even he was ordered out of Petersburg.
Escaping from her father she ran to hide her flushed face in the lace of her mother's mantilla--not paying the least attention to her severe remark--and began to laugh.
"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.
Olga, go and see whether Uncle's beef tea is ready--it is almost time, she added, giving Pierre to understand that they were busy, and busy making his father comfortable, while evidently he, Pierre, was only busy causing him annoyance.
Rostov, the father, is Ilya, and his son is Nicholas.
The latter understood that she was being asked to entertain this young man, and sitting down beside him she began to speak about his father; but he answered her, as he had the countess, only in monosyllables.
His father lies on his deathbed and he amuses himself setting a policeman astride a bear!
Rousing himself, Pierre followed Anna Mikhaylovna out of the carriage, and only then began to think of the interview with his dying father which awaited him.
Think that he is your father... perhaps in the agony of death.
"Read this if you like, Father," said the princess, blushing still more and holding out the letter.
The princess was as untidy as her father was tidy.
Give my respects to monsieur your father and my compliments to Mademoiselle Bourienne.
The news of Count Bezukhov's death reached us before your letter and my father was much affected by it.
My father has not spoken to me of a suitor, but has only told me that he has received a letter and is expecting a visit from Prince Vasili.
My father talks of nothing but marches and countermarches, things of which I understand nothing; and the day before yesterday during my daily walk through the village I witnessed a heartrending scene....
"Ah, dear friend," replied Princess Mary, "I have asked you never to warn me of the humor my father is in.
Prince Andrew went up and kissed his father on the spot indicated to him.
"Yes, Father, I have come to you and brought my wife who is pregnant," said Prince Andrew, following every movement of his father's face with an eager and respectful look.
Prince Andrew, seeing that his father insisted, began--at first reluctantly, but gradually with more and more animation, and from habit changing unconsciously from Russian to French as he went on--to explain the plan of operation for the coming campaign.
Everything her father did inspired her with reverence and was beyond question.
The prince asked her about her father, and she began to smile and talk.
His son made no rejoinder, but it was evident that whatever arguments were presented he was as little able as his father to change his opinion.
The little princess during the whole discussion and the rest of the dinner sat silent, glancing with a frightened look now at her father-in- law and now at Princess Mary.
Only those things he always kept with him remained in his room; a small box, a large canteen fitted with silver plate, two Turkish pistols and a saber--a present from his father who had brought it from the siege of Ochakov.
Father likes her very much.
Father took her when she was homeless after losing her own father.
She is very good-natured, and my father likes her way of reading.
"He always was rather harsh; and now I should think he's getting very trying," said Prince Andrew, apparently speaking lightly of their father in order to puzzle or test his sister.
But even if one might, what feeling except veneration could such a man as my father evoke?
Father's father, our grandfather, wore it in all his wars.
Andrew did not speak; he was both pleased and displeased that his father understood him.
Andrew did not tell his father that he would no doubt live a long time yet.
"I will do it all, Father," he said.
"Remember this, Prince Andrew, if they kill you it will hurt me, your old father..." he paused unexpectedly, and then in a querulous voice suddenly shrieked: "but if I hear that you have not behaved like a son of Nicholas Bolkonski, I shall be ashamed!"
"You need not have said that to me, Father," said the son with a smile.
A drummer, their leader, turned round facing the singers, and flourishing his arm, began a long-drawn-out soldiers' song, commencing with the words: "Morning dawned, the sun was rising," and concluding: "On then, brothers, on to glory, led by Father Kamenski."
Excited and irritated by these thoughts Prince Andrew went toward his room to write to his father, to whom he wrote every day.
I have an old father and mother!...
Between four and five in the afternoon, having made all his calls, he was returning to Bilibin's house thinking out a letter to his father about the battle and his visit to Brunn.
The aunt was just speaking of a collection of snuffboxes that had belonged to Pierre's father, Count Bezukhov, and showed them her own box.
I loved your father... and she will make you a good wife...
She grew pale on seeing her father-in-law.
I say, Father, joking apart, is she very hideous?
The little princess and Mademoiselle Bourienne had already received from Masha, the lady's maid, the necessary report of how handsome the minister's son was, with his rosy cheeks and dark eyebrows, and with what difficulty the father had dragged his legs upstairs while the son had followed him like an eagle, three steps at a time.
Anatole kissed the old man, and looked at him with curiosity and perfect composure, waiting for a display of the eccentricities his father had told him to expect.
When your father writes to tell me that you are behaving well I will give you my hand to kiss.
The first man that turns up--she forgets her father and everything else, runs upstairs and does up her hair and wags her tail and is unlike herself!
Glad to throw her father over!
But what her father had said about Mademoiselle Bourienne was dreadful.
I will go to my father, she said, and went out.
My desire is never to leave you, Father, never to separate my life from yours.
I don't wish to marry, she answered positively, glancing at Prince Vasili and at her father with her beautiful eyes.
If he is not rich I will give her the means; I will ask my father and Andrew.
And suddenly, at this thought of death, a whole series of most distant, most intimate, memories rose in his imagination: he remembered his last parting from his father and his wife; he remembered the days when he first loved her.
And the count turned to the cook, who, with a shrewd and respectful expression, looked observantly and sympathetically at the father and son.
"Your son," wrote Kutuzov, "fell before my eyes, a standard in his hand and at the head of a regiment--he fell as a hero, worthy of his father and his fatherland.
She forgot all fear of her father, went up to him, took his hand, and drawing him down put her arm round his thin, scraggy neck.
"Father," she said, "do not turn away from me, let us weep together."
The princess sank helplessly into an armchair beside her father and wept.
"Father, tell me how it happened," she asked through her tears.
She had determined not to tell her and persuaded her father to hide the terrible news from her till after her confinement, which was expected within a few days.
At that moment his home life, jokes with Petya, talks with Sonya, duets with Natasha, piquet with his father, and even his comfortable bed in the house on the Povarskaya rose before him with such vividness, clearness, and charm that it seemed as if it were all a lost and unappreciated bliss, long past.
He knew what a shock he would inflict on his father and mother by the news of this loss, he knew what a relief it would be to escape it all, and felt that Dolokhov knew that he could save him from all this shame and sorrow, but wanted now to play with him as a cat does with a mouse.
To say "tomorrow" and keep up a dignified tone was not difficult, but to go home alone, see his sisters, brother, mother, and father, confess and ask for money he had no right to after giving his word of honor, was terrible.
And suddenly, in the most casual tone, which made him feel ashamed of himself, he said, as if merely asking his father to let him have the carriage to drive to town:
"Dear me!" said his father, who was in a specially good humor.
While father and son were having their explanation, the mother and daughter were having one not less important.
After Denisov's departure, Rostov spent another fortnight in Moscow, without going out of the house, waiting for the money his father could not at once raise, and he spent most of his time in the girls' room.
Pierre tried several times to speak, but, on one hand, Prince Vasili did not let him and, on the other, Pierre himself feared to begin to speak in the tone of decided refusal and disagreement in which he had firmly resolved to answer his father-in-law.
But before Prince Vasili had finished his playful speech, Pierre, without looking at him, and with a kind of fury that made him like his father, muttered in a whisper:
Princess Mary had ceased taking lessons in mathematics from her father, and when the old prince was at home went to his study with the wet nurse and little Prince Nicholas (as his grandfather called him).
After the Austerlitz campaign Prince Andrew had firmly resolved not to continue his military service, and when the war recommenced and everybody had to serve, he took a post under his father in the recruitment so as to avoid active service.
"Petrusha has come with papers from your father," whispered the maid.
"Devil take them!" he muttered, and after listening to the verbal instructions his father had sent and taking the correspondence and his father's letter, he returned to the nursery.
Despite Count Bezukhov's enormous wealth, since he had come into an income which was said to amount to five hundred thousand rubles a year, Pierre felt himself far poorer than when his father had made him an allowance of ten thousand rubles.
My father is chief in command of the Third District, and my only way of avoiding active service is to serve under him.
My father is one of the most remarkable men of his time.
Old women's nonsense--old women's nonsense! he repeated, but still he patted Pierre affectionately on the shoulder, and then went up to the table where Prince Andrew, evidently not wishing to join in the conversation, was looking over the papers his father had brought from town.
Prince Andrew spent half his time at Bald Hills with his father and his son, who was still in the care of nurses.
The other half he spent in "Bogucharovo Cloister," as his father called Prince Andrew's estate.
"No," said Prince Andrew, "my father did not wish me to take advantage of the privilege.
Your father, a man of the last century, evidently stands above our contemporaries who so condemn this measure which merely reestablishes natural justice.
Don't come in, Papa! she cried to her father as he opened the door--speaking from under the filmy skirt which still covered her whole face.
"I have never enjoyed myself so much before!" she said, and Prince Andrew noticed how her thin arms rose quickly as if to embrace her father and instantly dropped again.
His father received his son's communication with external composure, but inward wrath.
Pierre did not come either and Natasha, not knowing that Prince Andrew had gone to see his father, could not explain his absence to herself.
My father, to whom I have told my plans, has made it an express condition of his consent that the wedding is not to take place for a year.
The father and mother came into the room and gave the betrothed couple their blessing.
Could he be to blame toward her, or could her father, whom she knew loved her in spite of it all, be unjust?
Before he left he had a long talk with his father about something, and Princess Mary noticed that before his departure they were dissatisfied with one another.
And my father cannot stand this.
My father then insisted on a delay of a year and now already six months, half of that period, have passed, and my resolution is firmer than ever.
The princess was about to reply, but her father would not let her speak and, raising his voice more and more, cried:
And latterly, to her surprise and bewilderment, Princess Mary noticed that her father was really associating more and more with the Frenchwoman.
She wrote to Prince Andrew about the reception of his letter, but comforted him with hopes of reconciling their father to the idea.
Her father objected to this because he wanted a more distinguished and wealthier match for Andrew.
She disclosed this thought to no one but to her confessor, Father Akinfi, the monk, and he approved of her intention.
But afterwards, when she saw her father and especially little Koko (Nicholas), her resolve weakened.
She wept quietly, and felt that she was a sinner who loved her father and little nephew more than God.
His father and mother were much the same, only a little older.
Involuntarily Rostov recalled all the good he had heard about him from his father and the neighbors.
Nicholas replied that he could not go back on his word, and his father, sighing and evidently disconcerted, very soon became silent and went in to the countess.
The father and mother did not speak of the matter to their son again, but a few days later the countess sent for Sonya and, with a cruelty neither of them expected, reproached her niece for trying to catch Nicholas and for ingratitude.
She did not go out into society; everyone knew that her father would not let her go anywhere without him, and his failing health prevented his going out himself, so that she was not invited to dinners and evening parties.
Tomorrow you'll go with your father to see her.
When he comes, he'll find you already know his sister and father and are liked by them.
She greeted the father and daughter with special politeness and showed them to the princess' room.
God is my witness, I didn't know-" he repeated, stressing the word "God" so unnaturally and so unpleasantly that Princess Mary stood with downcast eyes not daring to look either at her father or at Natasha.
And what do his father and sister matter to me?
Natasha went back to her father in the other box, now quite submissive to the world she found herself in.
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.
Anatole had very soon abandoned his wife and, for a payment which he agreed to send to his father-in-law, had arranged to be free to pass himself off as a bachelor.
More than once he had vexed his father by spoiling his own career, and he laughed at distinctions of all kinds.
Natasha remarked to her father who had also risen and was moving through the crowd toward the actress.
Natasha without saying anything stepped up to her father and looked at him with surprised inquiring eyes.
Her father asked her to come home, but she begged to remain.
Later on she recalled how she had asked her father to let her go to the dressing room to rearrange her dress, that Helene had followed her and spoken laughingly of her brother's love, and that she again met Anatole in the little sitting room.
"Do not think, however," she wrote, "that my father is ill-disposed toward you.
Think of your father and of Nicholas.
I'm only sorry for her father! thought she, trying to restrain her wrath.
I'd treat you differently, but I'm sorry for your father, so I will conceal it.
But when your father comes back tomorrow what am I to tell him?
He, your father, I know him... if he challenges him to a duel will that be all right?
Your father, or brother, or your betrothed?
Marya Dmitrievna went on admonishing her for some time, enjoining on her that it must all be kept from her father and assuring her that nobody would know anything about it if only Natasha herself would undertake to forget it all and not let anyone see that something had happened.
As soon as he reached Moscow, Prince Andrew had received from his father Natasha's note to Princess Mary breaking off her engagement (Mademoiselle Bourienne had purloined it from Princess Mary and given it to the old prince), and he heard from him the story of Natasha's elopement, with additions.
"I much regret her illness," said Prince Andrew; and he smiled like his father, coldly, maliciously, and unpleasantly.
Prince Andrew talked incessantly, arguing now with his father, now with the Swiss tutor Dessalles, and showing an unnatural animation, the cause of which Pierre so well understood.
That day he did not see his father, who did not leave his room and admitted no one but Mademoiselle Bourienne and Tikhon, but asked several times whether his son had gone.
He sought in himself either remorse for having angered his father or regret at leaving home for the first time in his life on bad terms with him, and was horrified to find neither.
When they prayed for those who love us, she prayed for the members of her own family, her father and mother and Sonya, realizing for the first time how wrongly she had acted toward them, and feeling all the strength of her love for them.
She included among her enemies the creditors and all who had business dealings with her father, and always at the thought of enemies and those who hated her she remembered Anatole who had done her so much harm--and though he did not hate her she gladly prayed for him as for an enemy.
Natasha sat erect, gazing with a searching look now at her father and now at Pierre.
At this moment, Petya, to whom nobody was paying any attention, came up to his father with a very flushed face and said in his breaking voice that was now deep and now shrill:
She could understand nothing, think of nothing and feel nothing, except passionate love for her father, love such as she thought she had never felt till that moment.
For herself she did not care where she remained or what happened to her, but she felt herself the representative of her dead father and of Prince Andrew.
She also knew that neither her father nor her brother would refuse to help the peasants in need, she only feared to make some mistake in speaking about the distribution of the grain she wished to give.
"I had the pleasure," replied Prince Andrew, "not only of taking part in the retreat but of losing in that retreat all I held dear--not to mention the estate and home of my birth--my father, who died of grief.
