1 Agathokleya Kuzminishna soon followed him; she could not accustom herself to a dull life in the capital; she was consumed by the ennui of existence away from the regiment.
2 There's a racket in my belly, as if a whole regiment were blowing trumpets.
3 The matter was mentioned to the Emperor, an exception made, and Boris transferred into the regiment of Semenov Guards with the rank of cornet.
4 On the evening of the last day's march an order had been received that the commander-in-chief would inspect the regiment on the march.
5 The commander of the regiment was an elderly, choleric, stout, and thick-set general with grizzled eyebrows and whiskers, and wider from chest to back than across the shoulders.
6 With this object he intended to meet the regiment; so the worse the condition it was in, the better pleased the commander-in-chief would be.
7 The regimental commander walked with his jerky steps to the front of the regiment and examined it from a distance.
8 He was evidently pleased at his own display of anger and walking up to the regiment wished to find a further excuse for wrath.
9 The regiment fluttered like a bird preening its plumage and became motionless.
10 The caleche stopped in front of the regiment.
11 The word of command rang out, and again the regiment quivered, as with a jingling sound it presented arms.
12 The regiment roared, "Health to your ex."
13 At first Kutuzov stood still while the regiment moved; then he and the general in white, accompanied by the suite, walked between the ranks.
14 Thanks to the strictness and assiduity of its commander the regiment, in comparison with others that had reached Braunau at the same time, was in splendid condition.
15 The regimental commander ran forward on each such occasion, fearing to miss a single word of the commander-in-chief's regarding the regiment.
