Sample text

Well, Sevastyanich, old mate - he shouted, upon reading it - you must have been well and truly away with it last night; what a lot of rubbish you’ve written! Listen to this, Andrey Ignatevich - he added, turning to the district physician - this is the sort of petitioner Sevastyanich is putting forward to us. And he read the curious request through to the district physician, word for word, splitting his sides. - Well, let’s go, gentlemen, - he said finally, - and unseal this garrulous body, yes, and if it doesn’t respond, then we’ll bury it while the going is 24 The Tale o f a Dead Body good; it’s time we got back to town.

You will be convinced of this when I send you an extract from my uncle’s library. Letter IV In my last letter I forgot to tell you the very thing which had prompted me to begin it The thing is, my Mend, that I find myself in a strange position and I am asking your advice.
