Cousin Anna gave me a pretty doll.
It was in July, 1805, and the speaker was the well-known Anna Pavlovna Scherer, maid of honor and favorite of the Empress Marya Fedorovna.
Anna Pavlovna had had a cough for some days.
Anna Pavlovna Scherer on the contrary, despite her forty years, overflowed with animation and impulsiveness.
In the midst of a conversation on political matters Anna Pavlovna burst out:
"Listen, dear Annette," said the prince, suddenly taking Anna Pavlovna's hand and for some reason drawing it downwards.
Anna Pavlovna's drawing room was gradually filling.
"Soyez tranquille, Lise, you will always be prettier than anyone else," replied Anna Pavlovna.
"What a delightful woman this little princess is!" said Prince Vasili to Anna Pavlovna.
Anna Pavlovna greeted him with the nod she accorded to the lowest hierarchy in her drawing room.
Anna Pavlovna's alarm was justified, for Pierre turned away from the aunt without waiting to hear her speech about Her Majesty's health.
Anna Pavlovna in dismay detained him with the words: Do you know the Abbe Morio?
"You think so?" rejoined Anna Pavlovna in order to say something and get away to attend to her duties as hostess.
"We will talk of it later," said Anna Pavlovna with a smile.
The third group was gathered round Mortemart and Anna Pavlovna.
Anna Pavlovna was obviously serving him up as a treat to her guests.
Anna Pavlovna arranged a group round him, inviting everyone to listen to his tale.
"The vicomte knew the duc personally," whispered Anna Pavlovna to one of the guests.
"Come over here, Helene, dear," said Anna Pavlovna to the beautiful young princess who was sitting some way off, the center of another group.
From time to time she smoothed the folds of her dress, and whenever the story produced an effect she glanced at Anna Pavlovna, at once adopted just the expression she saw on the maid of honor's face, and again relapsed into her radiant smile.
"Charming!" said Anna Pavlovna with an inquiring glance at the little princess.
Both were talking and listening too eagerly and too naturally, which was why Anna Pavlovna disapproved.
At that moment Anna Pavlovna came up and, looking severely at Pierre, asked the Italian how he stood Russian climate.
Not letting the abbe and Pierre escape, Anna Pavlovna, the more conveniently to keep them under observation, brought them into the larger circle.
He turned away from her with a grimace that distorted his handsome face, kissed Anna Pavlovna's hand, and screwing up his eyes scanned the whole company.
"You are off to the war, Prince?" said Anna Pavlovna.
In passing Prince Vasili seized Pierre's hand and said to Anna Pavlovna: Educate this bear for me!
Anna Pavlovna smiled and promised to take Pierre in hand.
It was, in fact, solely to meet Prince Vasili that she had obtained an invitation to Anna Pavlovna's reception and had sat listening to the vicomte's story.
"And what do you think of this latest comedy, the coronation at Milan?" asked Anna Pavlovna, "and of the comedy of the people of Genoa and Lucca laying their petitions before Monsieur Buonaparte, and Monsieur Buonaparte sitting on a throne and granting the petitions of the nations?
Prince Andrew looked Anna Pavlovna straight in the face with a sarcastic smile.
"I hope this will prove the last drop that will make the glass run over," Anna Pavlovna continued.
Pierre wished to make a remark, for the conversation interested him, but Anna Pavlovna, who had him under observation, interrupted:
Mon Dieu! muttered Anna Pavlovna in a terrified whisper.
But won't you come to this other table? repeated Anna Pavlovna.
In the first moment of Pierre's outburst Anna Pavlovna, despite her social experience, was horror-struck.
Several persons, among them the elderly lady and Anna Pavlovna, did however smile.
Though it was unintelligible why he had told it, or why it had to be told in Russian, still Anna Pavlovna and the others appreciated Prince Hippolyte's social tact in so agreeably ending Pierre's unpleasant and unamiable outburst.
Having thanked Anna Pavlovna for her charming soiree, the guests began to take their leave.
And everyone, including Anna Pavlovna, felt this.
"Go in, Annette, or you will catch cold," said the little princess, taking leave of Anna Pavlovna.
Anna Pavlovna had already managed to speak to Lise about the match she contemplated between Anatole and the little princess' sister-in-law.
"I rely on you, my dear," said Anna Pavlovna, also in a low tone.
Prince Andrew shook himself as if waking up, and his face assumed the look it had had in Anna Pavlovna's drawing room.
Prince Vasili kept the promise he had given to Princess Drubetskaya who had spoken to him on behalf of her only son Boris on the evening of Anna Pavlovna's soiree.
He received, however, no appointment to Kutuzov's staff despite all Anna Mikhaylovna's endeavors and entreaties.
The conversation was on the chief topic of the day: the illness of the wealthy and celebrated beau of Catherine's day, Count Bezukhov, and about his illegitimate son Pierre, the one who had behaved so improperly at Anna Pavlovna's reception.
"He chose his friends badly," interposed Anna Mikhaylovna.
"He is very much altered now," said Anna Mikhaylovna.
"How plainly all these young people wear their hearts on their sleeves!" said Anna Mikhaylovna, pointing to Nicholas as he went out.
The countess wished to have a tÃªte-Ã -tÃªte talk with the friend of her childhood, Princess Anna Mikhaylovna, whom she had not seen properly since she returned from Petersburg.
Anna Mikhaylovna, with her tear-worn but pleasant face, drew her chair nearer to that of the countess.
"With you I will be quite frank," said Anna Mikhaylovna.
Anna Mikhaylovna looked at Vera and paused.
"Ah, my love," answered Anna Mikhaylovna, "God grant you never know what it is to be left a widow without means and with a son you love to distraction!
"He is just the same as ever," replied Anna Mikhaylovna, "overflowing with amiability.
And my affairs are in such a bad way that my position is now a terrible one, continued Anna Mikhaylovna, sadly, dropping her voice.
And like a practical Petersburg lady who knows how to make the most of time, Anna Mikhaylovna sent someone to call her son, and went into the anteroom with him.
"My friend," said Anna Mikhaylovna in gentle tones, addressing the hall porter, "I know Count Cyril Vladimirovich is very ill... that's why I have come...
Seeing Anna Mikhaylovna and her son, Prince Vasili dismissed the doctor with a bow and approached them silently and with a look of inquiry.
"Is it possible?" exclaimed Anna Mikhaylovna.
"That is, with Ilya Rostov who married Nataly Shinshina," said Anna Mikhaylovna.
Evidently the prince understood her, and also understood, as he had done at Anna Pavlovna's, that it would be difficult to get rid of Anna Mikhaylovna.
"Would not such a meeting be too trying for him, dear Anna Mikhaylovna?" said he.
"Still the same; but what can you expect, this noise..." said the princess, looking at Anna Mikhaylovna as at a stranger.
It was the eldest who was reading--the one who had met Anna Mikhaylovna.
I am Boris, son of Princess Anna Mikhaylovna Drubetskaya.
After Anna Mikhaylovna had driven off with her son to visit Count Cyril Vladimirovich Bezukhov, Countess Rostova sat for a long time all alone applying her handkerchief to her eyes.
When Anna Mikhaylovna returned from Count Bezukhov's the money, all in clean notes, was lying ready under a handkerchief on the countess' little table, and Anna Mikhaylovna noticed that something was agitating her.
Anna Mikhaylovna instantly guessed her intention and stooped to be ready to embrace the countess at the appropriate moment.
Anna Mikhaylovna was already embracing her and weeping.
The countess exchanged glances with Anna Mikhaylovna.
At one end of the table sat the countess with Marya Dmitrievna on her right and Anna Mikhaylovna on her left, the other lady visitors were farther down.
It's that protege of yours, that sweet Princess Drubetskaya, that Anna Mikhaylovna whom I would not take for a housemaid... the infamous, vile woman!
As the wheels rolled softly over the straw beneath the windows, Anna Mikhaylovna, having turned with words of comfort to her companion, realized that he was asleep in his corner and woke him up.
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.
But neither Anna Mikhaylovna nor the footman nor the coachman, who could not help seeing these people, took any notice of them.
"It seems to be all right," Pierre concluded, and followed Anna Mikhaylovna.
These men pressed close to the wall to let Pierre and Anna Mikhaylovna pass and did not evince the least surprise at seeing them there.
"Is this the way to the princesses' apartments?" asked Anna Mikhaylovna of one of them.
Anna Mikhaylovna paused and waited for him to come up.
Pierre did not understand a word, but the conviction that all this had to be grew stronger, and he meekly followed Anna Mikhaylovna who was already opening a door.
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.
Anna Mikhaylovna evinced no surprise, she only smiled faintly and sighed, as if to say that this was no more than she had expected.
All became silent and turned to look at the pale tear-worn Anna Mikhaylovna as she entered, and at the big stout figure of Pierre who, hanging his head, meekly followed her.
Anna Mikhaylovna with just the same movement raised her shoulders and eyes, almost closing the latter, sighed, and moved away from the doctor to Pierre.
As soon as Anna Mikhaylovna had disappeared he noticed that the eyes of all in the room turned to him with something more than curiosity and sympathy.
Anna Mikhaylovna, with a meek, sorrowful, and all-forgiving expression on her face, stood by the door near the strange lady.
Anna Mikhaylovna stepped forward and, stooping over the dying man, beckoned to Lorrain from behind her back.
Around him everyone began to stir: steps were audible and whispers, among which Anna Mikhaylovna's was the most distinct.
Anna Mikhaylovna touched Pierre's hand and said, "Come."
Anna Mikhaylovna made a hurried sign with her eyes, glancing at the sick man's hand and moving her lips as if to send it a kiss.
Once more Pierre looked questioningly at Anna Mikhaylovna to see what he was to do next.
Anna Mikhaylovna with her eyes indicated a chair that stood beside the bed.
Anna Mikhaylovna nodded approvingly.
Anna Mikhaylovna looked attentively at the sick man's eyes, trying to guess what he wanted; she pointed first to Pierre, then to some drink, then named Prince Vasili in an inquiring whisper, then pointed to the quilt.
"He is dozing," said Anna Mikhaylovna, observing that one of the princesses was coming to take her turn at watching.
"Catiche has had tea served in the small drawing room," said Prince Vasili to Anna Mikhaylovna.
Go and take something, my poor Anna Mikhaylovna, or you will not hold out.
Pierre went with Anna Mikhaylovna into the small drawing room.
Anna Mikhaylovna was standing beside the princess, and they were both speaking in excited whispers.
"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.
She tried to pass Anna Mikhaylovna, but the latter sprang so as to bar her path.
"I know, my dear, kind princess," said Anna Mikhaylovna, seizing the portfolio so firmly that it was plain she would not let go easily.
Their efforts in the struggle for the portfolio were the only sounds audible, but it was evident that if the princess did speak, her words would not be flattering to Anna Mikhaylovna.
But Anna Mikhaylovna went forward a step or two to keep her hold on the portfolio, and changed her grip.
But Anna Mikhaylovna did not obey him.
"But, Prince," said Anna Mikhaylovna, "after such a solemn sacrament, allow him a moment's peace!
"Vile woman!" shouted the princess, darting unexpectedly at Anna Mikhaylovna and snatching the portfolio from her.
Anna Mikhaylovna, stooping, quickly caught up the object of contention and ran into the bedroom.
Anna Mikhaylovna came out last.
Anna Mikhaylovna left him, and when she returned he was fast asleep with his head on his arm.
In the morning Anna Mikhaylovna said to Pierre:
Pierre understood nothing of all this and coloring shyly looked in silence at Princess Anna Mikhaylovna.
After her talk with Pierre, Anna Mikhaylovna returned to the Rostovs' and went to bed.
A propos of marriages: do you know that a while ago that universal auntie Anna Mikhaylovna told me, under the seal of strict secrecy, of a plan of marriage for you.
Like the others, Anna Pavlovna Scherer showed Pierre the change of attitude toward him that had taken place in society.
Formerly in Anna Pavlovna's presence, Pierre had always felt that what he was saying was out of place, tactless and unsuitable, that remarks which seemed to him clever while they formed in his mind became foolish as soon as he uttered them, while on the contrary Hippolyte's stupidest remarks came out clever and apt.
Even if Anna Pavlovna did not say so, he could see that she wished to and only refrained out of regard for his modesty.
Anna Pavlovna arranged the different groups in her drawing room with her habitual skill.
The beauty went to the aunt, but Anna Pavlovna detained Pierre, looking as if she had to give some final necessary instructions.
I only wanted to know your opinion, and Anna Pavlovna let Pierre go.
The old aunt received the two young people in her corner, but seemed desirous of hiding her adoration for Helene and inclined rather to show her fear of Anna Pavlovna.
"Well, I will leave you in your little corner," came Anna Pavlovna's voice, "I see you are all right there."
A little later when he went up to the large circle, Anna Pavlovna said to him: "I hear you are refitting your Petersburg house?"
Pierre was one of those who are only strong when they feel themselves quite innocent, and since that day when he was overpowered by a feeling of desire while stooping over the snuffbox at Anna Pavlovna's, an unacknowledged sense of the guilt of that desire paralyzed his will.
On either side of her sat the more important guests--an old general and his wife, and Anna Pavlovna Scherer.
"Don't be unkind," cried Anna Pavlovna from her end of the table holding up a threatening finger.
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.
"I think I may congratulate you," whispered Anna Pavlovna to the old princess, kissing her soundly.
Anna Mikhaylovna, who always knew everything that passed in the house, on hearing of the arrival of the letter went softly into the room and found the count with it in his hand, sobbing and laughing at the same time.
Anna Mikhaylovna, though her circumstances had improved, was still living with the Rostovs.
Anna Mikhaylovna sat down beside him, with her own handkerchief wiped the tears from his eyes and from the letter, then having dried her own eyes she comforted the count, and decided that at dinner and till teatime she would prepare the countess, and after tea, with God's help, would inform her.
Each time that these hints began to make the countess anxious and she glanced uneasily at the count and at Anna Mikhaylovna, the latter very adroitly turned the conversation to insignificant matters.
After dinner, she rushed head long after Anna Mikhaylovna and, dashing at her, flung herself on her neck as soon as she overtook her in the sitting room.
Anna Mikhaylovna shook her head.
I'm sure of it! exclaimed Natasha, reading confirmation in Anna Mikhaylovna's face.
Anna Mikhaylovna, in a few words, told her the contents of the letter, on condition that she should tell no one.
Anna Mikhaylovna, with the letter, came on tiptoe to the countess' door and paused.
At first he heard the sound of indifferent voices, then Anna Mikhaylovna's voice alone in a long speech, then a cry, then silence, then both voices together with glad intonations, and then footsteps.
Anna Mikhaylovna opened the door.
Anna Mikhaylovna, practical woman that she was, had even managed by favor with army authorities to secure advantageous means of communication for herself and her son.
Sonya, Natasha, Petya, Anna Mikhaylovna, Vera, and the old count were all hugging him, and the serfs, men and maids, flocked into the room, exclaiming and oh-ing and ah-ing.
The count was delighted at Anna Mikhaylovna's taking upon herself one of his commissions and ordered the small closed carriage for her.
Anna Mikhaylovna turned up her eyes, and profound sadness was depicted on her face.
Anna Mikhaylovna sighed deeply.
On his right sat the Italian abbe whom Pierre had met at Anna Pavlovna's two years before.
The novelty Anna Pavlovna was setting before her guests that evening was Boris Drubetskoy, who had just arrived as a special messenger from the Prussian army and was aide-de-camp to a very important personage.
Anna Pavlovna gave him her shriveled hand to kiss and introduced him to several persons whom he did not know, giving him a whispered description of each.
Thanks to Anna Mikhaylovna's efforts, his own tastes, and the peculiarities of his reserved nature, Boris had managed during his service to place himself very advantageously.
To be in Anna Pavlovna's drawing room he considered an important step up in the service, and he at once understood his role, letting his hostess make use of whatever interest he had to offer.
After that Anna Pavlovna led up to the courage and firmness of the King of Prussia, in order to draw Boris into the conversation.
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.
For some time he engrossed the general attention, and Anna Pavlovna felt that the novelty she had served up was received with pleasure by all her visitors.
"You know her husband, of course?" said Anna Pavlovna, closing her eyes and indicating Helene with a sorrowful gesture.
When Boris and Anna Pavlovna returned to the others Prince Hippolyte had the ear of the company.
Anna Pavlovna waited for him to go on, but as he seemed quite decided to say no more she began to tell of how at Potsdam the impious Bonaparte had stolen the sword of Frederick the Great.
"Your joke is too bad, it's witty but unjust," said Anna Pavlovna, shaking her little shriveled finger at him.
