rooms.
 Well done, instead of me, Pyotr, you put the
defunct Prov. He cannot pay you, - take this
25 RUBLES IN PAPER MONEY
 Pyotr!.. Pyotr, not Prov!..
 You are asked to draft a document.
 No, Id rather copy something.
Like that he turned into a lifelong
titular counselor Bashmachkin.
 The cloth has got worn
There is in Petersburg a mighty foe for
coatless clerks. That foe is frost.
Petrovich, the tailor.
 No it cant be repaired: a wretched
garment. You need a new one
 And how much would it er cost?
 Well, three fifty-ruble notes or more.
 150.
From that moment on he dreamed of his new
overcoat as of an agreeable companion.
 I have already had some,
my good woman.
Overcoats capital.
EXPENSES: LINEN TO WASH -
00, 57; COBBLING - 1,00;
EVENING TEA - 2,05; WEARING
THE UNIFORM OFF DUTY
 For his long service our Akakiy
Akakievich got a gratuity of 60 rubles,
a buckle in a button-hole, and
a hemorrhoid in his bottom.
The most solemn day in the
life of Akakiy Akakievich.
 New overcoat! Lets wet it!
 Its not a new overcoat,
its just er an old coat.
 All right, I invite you all to
tea instead of Akakiy Akakievich.
As luck would have it, it is my name day.
The clerk who had invited him to tea lived
a long distance from Akakiy Akakievich.
Soon Akakiy Akakievich felt that he
was one too many in this company.
 Brother, they they
stole my new overcoat
 Brother, who should I address?..
Superintendent?.. Police constable of the quarter?..
It is known that the Person of consequence
used to be a Person of no consequence.
But which merits made of him a
Person of consequence is not known.
 A clerk is waiting for
you in the anteroom.
 Ah! He can wait, I havent time now.
 A clerk is waiting for you
over there Shall I call him?
 Your Excellency, I came to ask you
 What next, dear sir! Dont
you know how to proceed?
You should have addressed
the secretary first
 Secretaries, your Excellency, are
people er you cant depend on
 What? What?! What! Where did you
get hold of such spirit, young man?
 How dare you, young man?!
In an instant it had blown
a quinsy into his throat.
 You had better lose
no time, my good woman,
order him now a deal coffin - an
oak one will be too dear for him.
Apparitions, each stranger than the
one before, were haunting him.
UNDER THIS REFERENCE NUMBER IT IS
REPORTED THAT A TITULAR COUNSELOR,
AKAKIY AKAKIEVICH BASHMACHKIN,
IS WITHDRAWN FROM THE RECORDS
BY REASON OF DEATH.
A. BASHMACHKIN
THE END
