Speaking of the position of Prussia, Anna Pavlovna very naturally asked Boris to tell them about his journey to Glogau and in what state he found the Prussian army.

I was coming to tell you so.
I can't tell you how much I have lived through since then.
Pierre blushed, as he always did when it was mentioned, and said hurriedly: I will tell you some time how it all happened.
Pelageya interrupted her companion; she evidently wished to tell what she had seen.

It seemed to him that he ought to have an explanation with Natasha and tell her that the old times must be forgotten, that in spite of everything... she could not be his wife, that he had no means, and they would never let her marry him.

What did I tell you? said Pierre suddenly, rising and beginning to pace up and down the room.
And I wished to tell you of that, said Prince Andrew.
"Did your mother tell you that it cannot be for a year?" asked Prince Andrew, still looking into her eyes.
When Prince Andrew spoke (he could tell a story very well), Natasha listened to him with pride; when she spoke she noticed with fear and joy that he gazed attentively and scrutinizingly at her.
Write and tell him that he may marry tomorrow if he likes.
"Daniel, tell them to saddle for us, and Michael must come with my dogs," she added to the huntsman.

If you tell, you are my enemy! declared Natasha.

Tell him only that I beg him to forgive, forgive, forgive me for everything....
"I will tell him, I will tell him everything once more," said Pierre.
