1 Schubert, the colonel of the Pavlograd Hussars, is dining with us today.
2 At the other end sat the count, with the hussar colonel on his left and Shinshin and the other male visitors on his right.
3 The colonel told them that the declaration of war had already appeared in Petersburg and that a copy, which he had himself seen, had that day been forwarded by courier to the commander-in-chief.
4 The colonel was a stout, tall, plethoric German, evidently devoted to the service and patriotically Russian.
5 Pierre listened to the colonel's speech and nodded approvingly.
6 You tell the colonel in the presence of other officers that an officer has stolen.
7 Beside the bridge Nesvitski found the colonel to whom he had to deliver the order, and having done this he rode back.
8 The high-shouldered figure of Zherkov, familiar to the Pavlograds as he had but recently left their regiment, rode up to the colonel.
9 Zherkov was followed by an officer of the suite who rode up to the colonel of hussars with the same order.
10 The colonel deliberately stopped the regiment and turned to Nesvitski.
11 continued the colonel in an offended tone.
12 The colonel looked silently at the officer of the suite, at the stout staff officer, and at Zherkov, and he frowned.
13 Rostov no longer looked at the colonel, he had no time.
14 "At boss zides, Captain," he heard the voice of the colonel, who, having ridden ahead, had pulled up his horse near the bridge, with a triumphant, cheerful face.
15 And Denisov rode up to a group that had stopped near Rostov, composed of the colonel, Nesvitski, Zherkov, and the officer from the suite.
