Actually, she knew very little about the man with whom she had promised to spend the summer.
He saw a gentleman whom he presumed to be the director, and told him about Helen.
At the porch he met two of the landed gentry, one of whom he knew.
Here in dwells an old man with whom I would like to converse.
How different if must be, he thought, making love with someone for whom you really cared.
Whom will you send for?
To whom did you apply?
Whom are they firing at?
The famous men of whom I have told you in this story are commonly called the Seven Wise Men of Greece.
It is the work of a brave man surely, in whom there was no guile!
He saw the kind faces of those whom he loved.
He was peppered with questions from the rescuers, many of whom he recognized, but he held responses to a negative shake of his head and Billy Langstrom's name.
She was surprised to see three people within, none of whom looked like they fit in the refined, elegant spaces of the parlor.
He said, "They are mine, they are personal and I will choose with whom to share them."
Dean felt equally acrimonious toward the overbearing state official whom he hadn't seen since the winter and who, in Dean's mind, had no business being back in Ouray.
Really. By whom - and why?
What are we scared at and of whom are we afraid?
He whirled to face the man of whom he thought.
Fear fluttered through her, and her gaze flew to Kris, whom she trusted little more than his sadistic brother.
I ran it by Quinn and Martha, both of whom kicked the decision back to me.
The adobe structure was guarded by several more Guardians, none of whom looked like Damian from the distance.
"Then to whom shall we take it?" asked the messengers.
The people whom they met gazed at them and wondered who they could be.
"From whom did you get this?" she asked.
When Pierre saw the Emperor he was coming out accompanied by two merchants, one of whom Pierre knew, a fat otkupshchik.
"My two trusted advisors, neither of whom trusts the other," Memon said, entertained.
This charcoal man, whom I know very well, ran past me with a child in his arms.
Who is that intemperate and brutal man whom we would redeem?
However, practically speaking, it sometimes has a corrupting influence on those whom it empowers to act for the state.
Pierre was staying at Prince Vasili Kuragin's and sharing the dissipated life of his son Anatole, the son whom they were planning to reform by marrying him to Prince Andrew's sister.
Whom have you come from?
Rostov, in dismay, began justifying himself, but seeing the kindly, jocular face of the general, he took him aside and in an excited voice told him the whole affair, asking him to intercede for Denisov, whom the general knew.
She felt agitated and tormented, and the cause of this was Kuragin whom she could not help watching.
An old peasant whom Prince Andrew in his childhood had often seen at the gate was sitting on a green garden seat, plaiting a bast shoe.
Her actions toward Julie, her mother and to Betsy with whom she shares a special relationship are markedly different.
One real runaway slave, among the rest, whom I helped to forward toward the north star.
"How was it a gun was abandoned?" asked Bagration, frowning, not so much at the captain as at those who were laughing, among whom Zherkov laughed loudest.
Me whom everyone is so fond of?
Understanding at once to whom she alluded, Prince Vasili said in a whisper:
And the point is that we knew whom he had it from.
'From whom did you get the proclamation?' 'I wrote it myself.'
Why was Napoleon III a criminal when he was taken prisoner at Boulogne, and why, later on, were those criminals whom he arrested?
Pierre, not knowing whom to answer, looked at them all and smiled.
The soldier to whom the laughers referred was Dolokhov.
Everybody is wondering to whom the count will leave his fortune, though he may perhaps outlive us all, as I sincerely hope he will...
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.
Turning to his adjutant he ordered him to bring down the two battalions of the Sixth Chasseurs whom they had just passed.
However painful it may be to me, should the Almighty lay the duties of wife and mother upon me I shall try to perform them as faithfully as I can, without disquieting myself by examining my feelings toward him whom He may give me for husband.
Excited and irritated by these thoughts Prince Andrew went toward his room to write to his father, to whom he wrote every day.
You may go and kill whom you please, but I don't want to do so anymore!
"Well, you know whom," said Pierre, with a meaning glance from under his brows.
The soldiers, of whom there are the most, form the lower section of the cone and its base.
I don't care to whom you've betrayed me.
There was one other with whom I had "solid seasons," long to be remembered, at his house in the village, and who looked in upon me from time to time; but I had no more for society there.
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!
Nicholas' Day and the prince's name day--all Moscow came to the prince's front door but he gave orders to admit no one and to invite to dinner only a small number, a list of whom he gave to Princess Mary.
'From whom did you get it?' and so on till he reached Vereshchagin, a half educated tradesman, you know, 'a pet of a trader,' said the adjutant smiling.
The boy with the thin neck stretching out from the turn-down collar-- whom everyone had forgotten--gazed at Pierre with even greater and more rapturous joy.
Effie explained effusively how she and her sister had spent the day resurrecting their long lost great-aunt, whom Dean wondered if they were about to dub Saint Annie.
Just before five o'clock he went to the kitchen to begin preparing spaghetti for Fred and himself, and Martha, whom they had invited to again stay for supper.
It is impossible to isolate a child in the midst of society, so that he shall not be influenced by the beliefs of those with whom he associates.
I should not talk so much about myself if there were anybody else whom I knew as well.
Entering the drawing room, where the princesses spent most of their time, he greeted the ladies, two of whom were sitting at embroidery frames while a third read aloud.
This young man, of whom I spoke to you last summer, is so noble-minded and full of that real youthfulness which one seldom finds nowadays among our old men of twenty and, particularly, he is so frank and has so much heart.
Decide, my dear, good, gentle Marie, whom I have always loved as a daughter!
How strange, how extraordinary, how joyful it seemed, that her son, the scarcely perceptible motion of whose tiny limbs she had felt twenty years ago within her, that son about whom she used to have quarrels with the too indulgent count, that son who had first learned to say "pear" and then "granny," that this son should now be away in a foreign land amid strange surroundings, a manly warrior doing some kind of man's work of his own, without help or guidance.
Boris, during the campaign, had made the acquaintance of many persons who might prove useful to him, and by a letter of recommendation he had brought from Pierre had become acquainted with Prince Andrew Bolkonski, through whom he hoped to obtain a post on the commander-in-chief's staff.
Commanded by the Emperor himself they could not fail to vanquish anyone, be it whom it might: so thought Rostov and most of the officers after the review.
Thirdly, he had a son whom it would be a pity to entrust to a chit of a girl.
This is what they have done with me! thought he, full of an irrepressible fury that welled up within him against the someone to whom what was happening might be attributed.
The officer of the Horse Guards went to a general with whom Ermolov was often to be found.
No one replied a word to Dolokhov's laughter, and a French officer whom they could not see (he lay wrapped in a greatcoat) rose and whispered something to a companion.
"That's right," said the man, whom Petya took to be an hussar.
"What about your master?" he asked Lavrushka, Denisov's orderly, whom all the regiment knew for a rogue.
He did not know whom to answer, and for a few seconds collected his thoughts.
In spite of Prince Andrew's disagreeable, ironical tone, in spite of the contempt with which Rostov, from his fighting army point of view, regarded all these little adjutants on the staff of whom the newcomer was evidently one, Rostov felt confused, blushed, and became silent.
If any one whom she is touching laughs at a joke, she laughs, too, just as if she had heard it.
I am not one of those on whom fortune deigns to smile.
This was Lieutenant Berg, an officer in the Semenov regiment with whom Boris was to travel to join the army, and about whom Natasha had teased her elder sister Vera, speaking of Berg as her "intended."
"Of whom you imagine me to be one?" said Prince Andrew, with a quiet and particularly amiable smile.
The one who was writing and whom Boris addressed turned round crossly and told him Bolkonski was on duty and that he should go through the door on the left into the reception room if he wished to see him.
He knew a lady on one of the boulevards whom he visited of an evening.
A minority of those present were casual guests--chiefly young men, among whom were Denisov, Rostov, and Dolokhov--who was now again an officer in the Semenov regiment.
As happens to some people, especially to men who judge those near to them severely, he always on meeting anyone new-- especially anyone whom, like Speranski, he knew by reputation--expected to discover in him the perfection of human qualities.
See whom she looks like!
Among those whom Julie's guests happened to choose to gossip about were the Rostovs.
After Kaysarov, others whom Pierre knew came up to him, and he had not time to reply to all the questions about Moscow that were showered upon him, or to listen to all that was told him.
He only saw in her a pretty and fresh young girl, with whom he did not deign to unite his fate.
Say from whom you had it.' 'I have seen no papers, I made it up myself.'
She packed, repacked, pressed, made the butler's assistant and Petya--whom she had drawn into the business of packing--press on the lid, and made desperate efforts herself.
After a few words about Princess Mary and her late father, whom Malvintseva had evidently not liked, and having asked what Nicholas knew of Prince Andrew, who also was evidently no favorite of hers, the important old lady dismissed Nicholas after repeating her invitation to come to see her.
Perhaps it was just the Cossack, Likhachev, who was sitting under the wagon, but it might be the kindest, bravest, most wonderful, most splendid man in the world, whom no one knew of.
Two French soldiers ran past Pierre, one of whom carried a lowered and smoking gun.
She was overcome by sweet sorrow and tears were already rising in her eyes; then she suddenly asked herself to whom she was saying this.
One group of the French stood close to the road, and two of them, one of whom had his face covered with sores, were tearing a piece of raw flesh with their hands.
How is it? said the man--a singer and a wag--whom Morel was embracing.
The French did not need to be informed of the fact that half the prisoners--with whom the Russians did not know what to do- -perished of cold and hunger despite their captors' desire to save them; they felt that it could not be otherwise.
Natasha had married in the early spring of 1813, and in 1820 already had three daughters besides a son for whom she had longed and whom she was now nursing.
She felt that the allurements instinct had formerly taught her to use would now be merely ridiculous in the eyes of her husband, to whom she had from the first moment given herself up entirely--that is, with her whole soul, leaving no corner of it hidden from him.
But the father whom the boy did not remember appeared to him a divinity who could not be pictured, and of whom he never thought without a swelling heart and tears of sadness and rapture.
The noncommissioned officers (of whom there are fewer) perform the action itself less frequently than the soldiers, but they already give commands.
We became friends because we both have a passion for food and wine.
I was still skating with Brennan and never came out and said Howie, whom I referred to by name, was the tipster.
He is the man whom the oracle meant.
I considered this suggestion carefully, then I told Mr. Rhoades that I should be proud and glad to have wise friends to whom I could always turn for advice in all important matters.
There isn't a living soul in this part of the world to whom I can go for advice in this, or indeed, in any other educational difficulty.
It brings me into closer and tenderer relationship with those I love, and makes it possible for me to enjoy the sweet companionship of a great many persons from whom I should be entirely cut off if I could not talk.
Crossing a road they descended a steep incline and saw several men lying on the ground; they also met a crowd of soldiers some of whom were unwounded.
He had merely understood that the woman he had known as a child, of whom when her beauty was mentioned he had said absent-mindedly: "Yes, she's good looking," he had understood that this woman might belong to him.
Prince Vasili readily adopted her tone and the little princess also drew Anatole, whom she hardly knew, into these amusing recollections of things that had never occurred.
The insult was the more pointed because it concerned not himself but another, his daughter, whom he loved more than himself.
In the middle of his story, just as he was saying: "You cannot imagine what a strange frenzy one experiences during an attack," Prince Andrew, whom Boris was expecting, entered the room.
The voices were those of the orderlies who were packing up; one voice, probably a coachman's, was teasing Kutuzov's old cook whom Prince Andrew knew, and who was called Tit.
In front he saw our artillerymen, some of whom were fighting, while others, having abandoned their guns, were running toward him.
Rostov rode on at a footpace not knowing why or to whom he was now going.
No one whom Rostov asked could tell him where the Emperor or Kutuzov was.
Bolkonski recognized Prince Repnin whom he had met in Petersburg society.
But to whom should I say that?
Rostov was talking merrily to his two friends, one of whom was a dashing hussar and the other a notorious duelist and rake, and every now and then he glanced ironically at Pierre, whose preoccupied, absent-minded, and massive figure was a very noticeable one at the dinner.
Hearing that cry and seeing to whom it was addressed, Nesvitski and the neighbor on his right quickly turned in alarm to Bezukhov.
When everything was ready, the stranger opened his eyes, moved to the table, filled a tumbler with tea for himself and one for the beardless old man to whom he passed it.
Soon after this there came into the dark chamber to fetch Pierre, not the Rhetor but Pierre's sponsor, Willarski, whom he recognized by his voice.
On his right sat the Italian abbe whom Pierre had met at Anna Pavlovna's two years before.
This gift will be a pledge of your purity of heart to her whom you select to be your worthy helpmeet in Masonry.
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.
On a third estate the priest, bearing a cross, came to meet him surrounded by children whom, by the count's generosity, he was instructing in reading, writing, and religion.
Returning from his journey through South Russia in the happiest state of mind, Pierre carried out an intention he had long had of visiting his friend Bolkonski, whom he had not seen for two years.
But of course you know her already, he said, evidently trying to entertain a visitor with whom he now found nothing in common.
A little behind the hussars came Denisov, accompanied by two infantry officers with whom he was talking.
Rostov went back into the hall and noticed that in the porch there were many officers and generals in full parade uniform, whom he had to pass.
Again the crowd of members of the suite and street gazers (among whom was Rostov) moved nearer to the Emperor.
"To whom shall it be given?" the Emperor Alexander asked Koslovski, in Russian in a low voice.
Often after collecting alms, and reckoning up twenty to thirty rubles received for the most part in promises from a dozen members, of whom half were as well able to pay as himself, Pierre remembered the masonic vow in which each Brother promised to devote all his belongings to his neighbor, and doubts on which he tried not to dwell arose in his soul.
The host followed with Marya Antonovna Naryshkina; then came ambassadors, ministers, and various generals, whom Peronskaya diligently named.
Next day Prince Andrew called at a few houses he had not visited before, and among them at the Rostovs' with whom he had renewed acquaintance at the ball.
The whole family, whom he had formerly judged severely, now seemed to him to consist of excellent, simple, and kindly people.
One morning Colonel Berg, whom Pierre knew as he knew everybody in Moscow and Petersburg, came to see him.
Pierre was the only person to whom he made up his mind to speak openly; and to him he told all that was in his soul.
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.
Could he be to blame toward her, or could her father, whom she knew loved her in spite of it all, be unjust?
Soon after Prince Andrew had gone, Princess Mary wrote to her friend Julie Karagina in Petersburg, whom she had dreamed (as all girls dream) of marrying to her brother, and who was at that time in mourning for her own brother, killed in Turkey.
Rostov had become a bluff, good-natured fellow, whom his Moscow acquaintances would have considered rather bad form, but who was liked and respected by his comrades, subordinates, and superiors, and was well contented with his life.
(This meant that the she-wolf, about whom they both knew, had moved with her cubs to the Otradnoe copse, a small place a mile and a half from the house.)
Pelageya Danilovna Melyukova, a broadly built, energetic woman wearing spectacles, sat in the drawing room in a loose dress, surrounded by her daughters whom she was trying to keep from feeling dull.
On the way back Nicholas drove at a steady pace instead of racing and kept peering by that fantastic all-transforming light into Sonya's face and searching beneath the eyebrows and mustache for his former and his present Sonya from whom he had resolved never to be parted again.
Pierre was one of those retired gentlemen-in-waiting of whom there were hundreds good-humoredly ending their days in Moscow.
Julie, with whom she had corresponded for the last five years, was in Moscow, but proved to be quite alien to her when they met.
Like the old emigre who declined to marry the lady with whom he had spent his evenings for years, she regretted Julie's presence and having no one to write to.
In Moscow Princess Mary had no one to talk to, no one to whom to confide her sorrow, and much sorrow fell to her lot just then.
At present he is hesitating whom to lay siege to-- you or Mademoiselle Julie Karagina.
On ordinary days, after dressing, she received petitioners of various classes, of whom there were always some.
She did not like Princess Mary, whom she thought very plain, affected, and dry.
Around him thronged Moscow's most brilliant young men, whom he evidently dominated.
Then he took his place in the first row of the stalls and sat down beside Dolokhov, nudging with his elbow in a friendly and offhand way that Dolokhov whom others treated so fawningly.
As Shinshin had remarked, from the time of his arrival Anatole had turned the heads of the Moscow ladies, especially by the fact that he slighted them and plainly preferred the gypsy girls and French actresses--with the chief of whom, Mademoiselle George, he was said to be on intimate relations.
The day before the count was to return, Sonya noticed that Natasha sat by the drawing-room window all the morning as if expecting something and that she made a sign to an officer who drove past, whom Sonya took to be Anatole.
He was in very good spirits; the affair with the purchaser was going on satisfactorily, and there was nothing to keep him any longer in Moscow, away from the countess whom he missed.
He drove through the town seeking Anatole Kuragin, at the thought of whom now the blood rushed to his heart and he felt a difficulty in breathing.
Anatole, for whom Pierre was looking, dined that day with Dolokhov, consulting him as to how to remedy this unfortunate affair.
Before leaving, Napoleon showed favor to the emperor, kings, and princes who had deserved it, reprimanded the kings and princes with whom he was dissatisfied, presented pearls and diamonds of his own--that is, which he had taken from other kings--to the Empress of Austria, and having, as his historian tells us, tenderly embraced the Empress Marie Louise--who regarded him as her husband, though he had left another wife in Paris--left her grieved by the parting which she seemed hardly able to bear.
After his interview with Pierre in Moscow, Prince Andrew went to Petersburg, on business as he told his family, but really to meet Anatole Kuragin whom he felt it necessary to encounter.
He thought not of this pretty child, his son whom he held on his knee, but of himself.
I want to meet that man whom I despise, so as to give him a chance to kill and laugh at me!
Anatole Kuragin, whom Prince Andrew had hoped to find with the army, was not there.
Already from his military experience and what he had seen in the Austrian campaign, he had come to the conclusion that in war the most deeply considered plans have no significance and that all depends on the way unexpected movements of the enemy--that cannot be foreseen--are met, and on how and by whom the whole matter is handled.
There was about him something of Weyrother, Mack, and Schmidt, and many other German theorist-generals whom Prince Andrew had seen in 1805, but he was more typical than any of them.
Prince Andrew, taking advantage of the Emperor's permission, accompanied Paulucci, whom he had known in Turkey, into the drawing room where the council was assembled.
Rostov reined in his horse, and his eyes sought his foe to see whom he had vanquished.
Then all these Westphalians and Hessians whom Napoleon is leading would not follow him into Russia, and we should not go to fight in Austria and Prussia without knowing why.
Having descended the hill the general after whom Pierre was galloping turned sharply to the left, and Pierre, losing sight of him, galloped in among some ranks of infantry marching ahead of him.
Pierre went to the right, and unexpectedly encountered one of Raevski's adjutants whom he knew.
There were many dead whom he did not know, but some he recognized.
Adjutant General Wolzogen, the man who when riding past Prince Andrew had said, "the war should be extended widely," and whom Bagration so detested, rode up while Kutuzov was at dinner.
He treated his Serene Highness with a somewhat affected nonchalance intended to show that, as a highly trained military man, he left it to Russians to make an idol of this useless old man, but that he knew whom he was dealing with.
Two doctors--one of whom was pale and trembling--were silently doing something to this man's other, gory leg.
When he had finished with the Tartar, whom they covered with an overcoat, the spectacled doctor came up to Prince Andrew, wiping his hands.
Pierre went up to a group of men, one of whom he knew.
He asked one, 'From whom did you get it?' 'From so-and-so.'
Petya was not at home, he had gone to visit a friend with whom he meant to obtain a transfer from the militia to the active army.
But he never thought about her as he had thought of all the young ladies without exception whom he had met in society, nor as he had for a long time, and at one time rapturously, thought about Sonya.
But with Princess Mary, to whom they were trying to get him engaged, he could never picture anything of future married life.
Just as it is impossible to say when it was decided to abandon Moscow, so it is impossible to say precisely when, or by whom, it was decided to move to Tarutino.
Discussions and questions of that kind, which are like the question of how to get the greatest gratification from one's dinner, did not then and do not now exist for those for whom the purpose of a dinner is the nourishment it affords; and the purpose of marriage is the family.
"He's come!" she exclaimed as she ran past, and Denisov felt that he too was delighted that Pierre, whom he did not much care for, had returned.
"Now who could decide whether he is really cleverer than all the others?" she asked herself, and passed in review all those whom Pierre most respected.
I admit I was sulking, not sure who was annoyed with whom; tiring of surely looks.
To whom should I confess my blunder?
In the Gustefson home resides a delightful young lady for whom I have special plans.
I managed to calm myself enough to relate what little I knew of what happened to the people with whom we'd both worked so closely.
"It's blue," the woman whom I learned was called Nancy answered.
He kept an eye out for Billy Langstrom, whom he still hoped to talk to, but he spotted neither him nor Pumpkin Green in the crowd.
Paulette Dawkins, whom Dean thought was dining with her clan, bounded into the kitchen to report a mouse sighting in her room.
He wondered if this beautiful, loving, compassionate wife of his whom he loved so dearly, was really capable of killing another human being.
"Cynthia didn't do it," Dean answered, trying to make his statement sound forceful, but unsure of whom he was trying to convince.
Parkside would remain untainted and a favored place to live and raise healthy, God fearing children who would become model citizens like those to whom he spoke.
Her eyes fell to the awaiting guards, most of whom wouldn't survive the night.
But I'm afraid you cannot rule the Emerald City, as you used to, because we now have a beautiful Princess whom everyone loves dearly.
It was a good old Friend, whom everybody loved--a-white-haired, pleasant-faced minister, whose words were always wise.
There was a caliph of Persia whose name was Al Mamoun. He had two sons whom he wished to become honest and noble men.
He began to see how foolish he had been; he thought how terrible it would be to live there without one friend, without one person to whom he could speak.
All the people whom they saw spoke in praise of his wisdom.
First, it will consider all your friends, people with whom you have actual intimate relationships, and it will look at where they go for Italian food.
I have many far-off friends whom I have never seen.
To them and to a few friends with whom she is in closest sympathy she writes with intimate frankness whatever she is thinking about.
There were about forty persons present, all of whom were writers and publishers.
The only person that we supposed might possibly have read the story to Helen was her friend, Mrs. Hopkins, whom she was visiting at the time in Brewster.
Stevenson, whom Miss Sullivan likes and used to read to her pupil, is another marked influence.
When I think of the benefactors of the race, whom we have apotheosized as messengers from heaven, bearers of divine gifts to man, I do not see in my mind any retinue at their heels, any carload of fashionable furniture.
Under what latitudes reside the heathen to whom we would send light?
One who has just come from reading perhaps one of the best English books will find how many with whom he can converse about it?
Next to us is not the workman whom we have hired, with whom we love so well to talk, but the workman whose work we are.
An unclean person is universally a slothful one, one who sits by a stove, whom the sun shines on prostrate, who reposes without being fatigued.
Great Expecter! to converse with whom was a New England Night's Entertainment.
Prince Vasili's son, Hippolyte, had come with Mortemart, whom he introduced.
Each visitor performed the ceremony of greeting this old aunt whom not one of them knew, not one of them wanted to know, and not one of them cared about.
Prince Hippolyte laughed spasmodically as he stood in the porch waiting for the vicomte whom he had promised to take home.
"Well, and to whom did you apply about Bory?" asked the countess.
Nicholas sat at some distance from Sonya, beside Julie Karagina, to whom he was again talking with the same involuntary smile.
God grant that the Corsican monster who is destroying the peace of Europe may be overthrown by the angel whom it has pleased the Almighty, in His goodness, to give us as sovereign!
Whom shall I announce?
* (2) "It is all very well for that good-for-nothing fellow of whom you have made a friend, but not for you, not for you."
Beside the bridge Nesvitski found the colonel to whom he had to deliver the order, and having done this he rode back.
The one general whom we all loved, Schmidt, you expose to a bullet, and then you congratulate us on the victory!
All along the sides of the road fallen horses were to be seen, some flayed, some not, and broken-down carts beside which solitary soldiers sat waiting for something, and again soldiers straggling from their companies, crowds of whom set off to the neighboring villages, or returned from them dragging sheep, fowls, hay, and bulging sacks.
After passing a chasseur regiment and in the lines of the Kiev grenadiers--fine fellows busy with similar peaceful affairs--near the shelter of the regimental commander, higher than and different from the others, Prince Andrew came out in front of a platoon of grenadiers before whom lay a naked man.
Just facing it, on the crest of the opposite hill, the village of Schon Grabern could be seen, and in three places to left and right the French troops amid the smoke of their campfires, the greater part of whom were evidently in the village itself and behind the hill.
No one had given Tushin orders where and at what to fire, but after consulting his sergeant major, Zakharchenko, for whom he had great respect, he had decided that it would be a good thing to set fire to the village.
He was merely a man of the world who had got on and to whom getting on had become a habit.
Of what, of whom, are we speaking?
Give them to the woman whom you shall honor most of all.
Le prochain--your Kiev peasants to whom you want to do good.
He was pleasantly considering the probability of being promoted in a few days for his last reconnoitering expedition, and was awaiting Denisov, who had gone out somewhere and with whom he wanted a talk.
Boris Drubetskoy had asked the important personage on whom he was in attendance, to include him in the suite appointed for the stay at Tilsit.
"I should like to see the great man," he said, alluding to Napoleon, whom hitherto he, like everyone else, had always called Buonaparte.
"Whom do you want?" someone inquired.
He spoke slowly, with assurance that he would be listened to, and he looked only at the person with whom he was conversing.
Among the men who very soon became frequent visitors at the Rostovs' house in Petersburg were Boris, Pierre whom the count had met in the street and dragged home with him, and Berg who spent whole days at the Rostovs' and paid the eldest daughter, Countess Vera, the attentions a young man pays when he intends to propose.
"You see," said Berg to his comrade, whom he called "friend" only because he knew that everyone has friends, "you see, I have considered it all, and should not marry if I had not thought it all out or if it were in any way unsuitable.
The thin, hollow-cheeked Chekmar, having got everything ready, kept glancing at his master with whom he had lived on the best of terms for thirty years, and understanding the mood he was in expected a pleasant chat.
This was Anatole Kuragin whom she had seen and noticed long ago at the ball in Petersburg.
Two witnesses for the mock marriage--Khvostikov, a retired petty official whom Dolokhov made use of in his gambling transactions, and Makarin, a retired hussar, a kindly, weak fellow who had an unbounded affection for Kuragin--were sitting at tea in Dolokhov's front room.
He could not reconcile the charming impression he had of Natasha, whom he had known from a child, with this new conception of her baseness, folly, and cruelty.
Pierre without greeting his wife whom he had not seen since his return-- at that moment she was more repulsive to him than ever--entered the drawing room and seeing Anatole went up to him.
* Those whom (God) wishes to destroy he drives mad.
"Your Majesty," replied Balashev, "my master, the Emperor, does not desire war and as Your Majesty sees..." said Balashev, using the words Your Majesty at every opportunity, with the affectation unavoidable in frequently addressing one to whom the title was still a novelty.
The Comte de Turenne showed him into a big reception room where many generals, gentlemen-in-waiting, and Polish magnates--several of whom Balashev had seen at the court of the Emperor of Russia--were waiting.
Only at prayer did she feel able to think clearly and calmly of Prince Andrew and Anatole, as men for whom her feelings were as nothing compared with her awe and devotion to God.
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:
After standing some time in the gateway, Petya tried to move forward in front of the others without waiting for all the carriages to pass, and he began resolutely working his way with his elbows, but the woman just in front of him, who was the first against whom he directed his efforts, angrily shouted at him:
The crowd drew up to the large table, at which sat gray-haired or bald seventy-year-old magnates, uniformed and besashed almost all of whom Pierre had seen in their own homes with their buffoons, or playing boston at the clubs.
One fair-haired young soldier of the third company, whom Prince Andrew knew and who had a strap round the calf of one leg, crossed himself, stepped back to get a good run, and plunged into the water; another, a dark noncommissioned officer who was always shaggy, stood up to his waist in the water joyfully wriggling his muscular figure and snorted with satisfaction as he poured the water over his head with hands blackened to the wrists.
