Collage 601

In the shed that Pierre entered and in which he stayed for four weeks, twenty-three soldiers, three officers, and two officials were held prisoner.
Later Pierre pictured them all as in a fog, but Platon Karataev remained forever in Pierre's soul as the strongest and dearest memory and the embodiment of everything Russian, kindly and round...the unfathomable, round, and eternal embodiment of the spirit of simplicity and truth. --pp 972-4 in P/V
