night, and carefully kept the door shut. "Not one, on my honor. But if I have, Ill catch them. You wouldnt believe what a pleasure it is! How have you spent the day?" "Very well. But have you really been mowing the whole day? I expect youre as hungry as a wolf. Kouzma has got everything ready for you." "No, I dont feel hungry even. I had something to eat there. But Ill go and wash." "Yes, go along, go along, and Ill come to you directly," said Sergey Ivanovitch, shaking his head as he looked at his brother. "Go along, make haste," he added smiling, and gathering up his books, he prepared to go too. He, too, felt suddenly good-humored and disinclined to leave his brothers side. "But what did you do while it was raining?" "Rain? Why, there was scarcely a drop. Ill come directly. So you had a nice day too? Thats first-rate." And Levin went off to change his clothes. Five minutes later the brothers met in the dining room. Although it seemed to Levin that he was not hungry, and he sat down to dinner simply so as not to hurt Kouzmas feelings, yet when he began to eat the dinner struck him as extraordinarily good. Sergey Ivanovitch watched him with a smile. "Oh, by the way, theres a letter for you," said he. "Kouzma, bring it down, please. And mind you shut the doors." The letter was from Oblonsky. Levin read it aloud. Oblonsky wrote to him from Petersburg: "I have had a letter from Dolly; shes at Ergushovo, and everything seems going wrong there. Do ride over and see her, please; help her with advice; you know all about it. She will be so glad to see you. Shes quite alone, poor thing. My mother-in-law and all of them are still abroad." "Thats capital! I will certainly ride over to her," said Levin. "Or well go together. Shes such a splendid woman, isnt she?" "Theyre not far from here, then?" "Twenty-five miles. Or perhaps it is thirty. But a capital road. Capital, well drive over." "I shall be delighted," said Sergey Ivanovitch, still smiling. The sight of his younger brothers appearance had immediately put him in a good humor. "Well, you have an appetite!" he said, looking at his dark-red, sunburnt face and neck bent over the plate. "Splendid! You cant imagine what an effectual remedy it is for every sort of foolishness. I want to enrich medicine with a new word: _Arbeitskur_." "Well, but you dont need it, I should fancy." "No, but for all sorts of nervous invalids." "Yes, it ought to be tried. I had meant to come to the mowing to look at you, but it was so unbearably hot that I got no further than the forest. I sat there a little, and went on by the forest to the village, met your old nurse, and sounded her as to the peasants view of you. As far as I can make out, they dont approve of this. She said: Its not a gentlemans work. Altogether, I fancy that in the peoples ideas there are very clear and definite notions of certain, as they call it, gentlemanly lines of action. And they dont sanction the gentrys moving outside bounds clearly laid down in their ideas." "Maybe so; but anyway its a pleasure such as I have never known in my life. And theres no harm in it, you know. Is there?" answered Levin. "I cant help it if they dont like it. Though I do believe its all right. Eh?" "Altogether," pursued Sergey Ivanovitch, "youre satisfied with your day?" "Quite satisfied. We cut the whole meadow. And such a splendid old man I made friends with there! You cant fancy how delightful he was!" "Well, so youre content with your day. And so am I. First, I solved two chess problems, and one a very pretty one--a pawn opening. Ill show it you. And then--I thought over our conversation yesterday." "Eh! our conversation yesterday?" said Levin, blissfully dropping his eyelids and drawing deep breaths after finishing his dinner, and absolutely incapable of recalling what their conversation yesterday was about. "I think you are partly right. Our difference of opinion amounts to this, that you make the mainspring self-interest, while I suppose that interest in the common weal
