Collage 634

Kutuzov, after a night of insomnia, hears the news that Napoleon has left Moscow. This news is like the dawn he has been waiting for.

"Lord my creator! Thou hast heeded our prayer..." he said in a trembling voice, clasping his hands. "Russia is saved. I thank thee, Lord!"

And he wept. -- Trish
