Rostov Velikiy >>
Personally Prince Lobanov was a grand seigneur of the Russian type, proud of being descended from the independent princes of Rostov, and at the same time an amiable man of wide culture, deeply versed in Russian history and genealogy, and perhaps the first authority of his time in all that related to the reign of the emperor Paul.
A short distance below the town of Rostov it breaks up into several channels, of which the largest and most southern retains the name of the river.
"That is, with Ilya Rostov who married Nataly Shinshina," said Anna Mikhaylovna.
"But a very kind man, Prince," said Anna Mikhaylovna with a pathetic smile, as though she too knew that Count Rostov deserved this censure, but asked him not to be too hard on the poor old man.
"Count Rostov asks you to come to dinner today," said he, after a considerable pause which made Pierre feel uncomfortable.
"Ah, Count Rostov!" exclaimed Pierre joyfully.
Rostov, the father, is Ilya, and his son is Nicholas.
The chest in the passage was the place of mourning for the younger female generation in the Rostov household.
The squadron in which Nicholas Rostov served as a cadet was quartered in the German village of Salzeneck.
Cadet Rostov, ever since he had overtaken the regiment in Poland, had lived with the squadron commander.
Denisov, who had been losing at cards all night, had not yet come home when Rostov rode back early in the morning from a foraging expedition.
Rostov patted the horse's neck and then his flank, and lingered for a moment.

Rostov took the money and, mechanically arranging the old and new coins in separate piles, began counting them.
Rostov thrust the purse under the pillow and shook the damp little hand which was offered him.
He behaved very well in the regiment but was not liked; Rostov especially detested him and was unable to overcome or conceal his groundless antipathy to the man.
"Oh, he's all right, a good horse," answered Rostov, though the horse for which he had paid seven hundred rubbles was not worth half that sum.
"Then I'll have it brought round," said Rostov wishing to avoid Telyanin, and he went out to give the order.
On seeing Rostov, Denisov screwed up his face and pointing over his shoulder with his thumb to the room where Telyanin was sitting, he frowned and gave a shudder of disgust.
Rostov shrugged his shoulders as much as to say: "Nor do I, but what's one to do?" and, having given his order, he returned to Telyanin.
Telyanin was sitting in the same indolent pose in which Rostov had left him, rubbing his small white hands.
"Well there certainly are disgusting people," thought Rostov as he entered.

He leaned his elbows on the table with his pen in his hand and, evidently glad of a chance to say quicker in words what he wanted to write, told Rostov the contents of his letter.
