2 Only the other day when the marshal of the nobility came into the class-room, he made such a face at him as I had never in my life seen before.
3 Yes, the nobility, you monkey-faces.
4 there's to be an Extraordinary Meeting of the nobility, and they are talking of a levy of ten men per thousand.
5 In the first were the nobility and gentry in their uniforms, in the second bearded merchants in full-skirted coats of blue cloth and wearing medals.

9 The secretary was told to write down the resolution of the Moscow nobility and gentry, that they would furnish ten men, fully equipped, out of every thousand serfs, as the Smolensk gentry had done.
10 From what he did hear he understood that the Emperor spoke of the danger threatening the empire and of the hopes he placed on the Moscow nobility.
11 From the hall of the nobility the Emperor went to that of the merchants.

13 He looked more robust, had let his whiskers grow, but was still the same graceful creature, whose face and figure were even more striking from their softness and nobility than their beauty.
14 He despised the nobility, and believed the mass of the nobility to be secretly in favor of serfdom, and only concealing their views from cowardice.
15 The district marshals of nobility were all occupied with the elections, and it was impossible to get the simplest thing done that depended upon the court of wardship.
