There is nothing better than Nevsky
Prospect, at least not in Petersburg.
Akakiy Akakievich Bashmachkin, a clerk of whom
it cannot be said that he was very remarkable.
A. GERMANN CAFE
What strange characters are met on the
Prospect!.. Cheats are part of it too!
The young clerk chasing the girl was so far a person
of no consequence, and yet - rather impetuous.
THE FOREIGNER IVAN
FEDOROVS ROOMS
Pyotr Petrovich Ptitsyn - a landowner coming
to Petersburg to burke one old matter.
 The person who has connections in the
well-known department has arrived.
You may consider your case as settled.
Bashmachkins flat was on the third story, one
little room without any pretentions to style.
RETIRED MAJOR FEDUL
KARPOVICH FERDYSCHEK
HEAVENLY CREATURE RETIRED MAJOR
In the Rooms of the
Foreigner Ivan Fedorov.
 As a man of education, would you
give us a co-operation, so to say?
 The thing is not tricky: where it is written
Pyotr - work a bit with a knife and a pen...
... and youll get Prov instead of Pyotr.
 He is not a general but is equal to one. Hes
got such an education and excellent deeds.
A lot of drafts and white paper were
circulating in a certain department
The Person of no consequence
came by the rooms again.
 Your case is rotten.
Bashmachkin has your case.
 Isnt it Bashmachkin over there?
 Send for Bashmachkin, and as he
comes, beckon him, and beckon him well.
Then keep after him about the case
Dreaming of a heavenly creature.
 The lady you saw yesterday on the prospect has
sent a carriage for you and asks you to come.
 Sign please!
 The lady you saw the other
day asks you to come.
FOMA FOMICH VEDENYAPIN REPORTS
ON PYOTR PETROVICH PTITSYN
WITH REFERENCE TO THE
FOLLOWING POINTS:

PETROVICH PTITSYN WAS VISITING
ME, FOMA FOMICH VEDENYAPIN,
AS MY WARM-HEARTED FRIEND
 Foma Fomich, exchange
your maid for my brown pig.
Be sure it will bear piglets next year.
 Youre yourself a brown pig, Pyotr
Petrovich! A swine cant do what a maid can.
 If Im a brown pig, then you are
a rebel and a Turkish spy, Foma Fomich!
HAVING BEEN REFUSED TO EXCHANGE
MY HOUSE MAID AGRAFENA,
HE TRIED TO LAY
VIOLENT HANDS ON ME,
AND WAS CHASED BY FORCE FROM
THE HOUSE BY MY KENNELMEN
REPORTS ON PROV
PETROVICH PTITSYN
The cream of the cultured society
gathered at night in the 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

my good woman.
Overcoats capital.

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
