Collage 605

"'They told her that Moscow is all burned down, completely, that supposedly . . .' Natasha stopped: it was impossible to speak. He [Prince Andrei] was obviously making an effort to listen and still could not. 'Yes, they say it's burned down,' he said. 'That's a great pity,' and he began to look straight ahead, absentmindedly stroking his mustache with his fingers." -p. 980 in P/V
