War and Peace
by Leo Tolstoy
War and Peace Volume 3, Part 3, Chapter 22 Summary
- It's weirdly quiet in the Rostov house. The only people left are the housekeeper, the yard porter, and the porter’s grandson.
- An officer stops by and begs the housekeeper for money. He says he’s a distant relative of Count Rostov. She knows he’s telling the truth – he looks just like the Count.
- She quickly gives him 25 rubles from her own savings and sends him on his way.
