dejected

Posted Dec 07 2012 7:07am
On all sides they saw rain-soaked clarisonic mia 2 officers with dejected faces who seemed to be seeking something, and soldiers dragging doors, benches, and fencing from the village. ??"There now, Prince! We can't stop those fellows," said the staff officer pointing to the soldiers. "The officers don't keep them in hand. And there," he pointed to a sutler's tent, "they crowd in and sit. This morning I turned them all out and now look, it's full again. I must go there, Prince, and scare them a bit. It won't take a moment." ??"Yes, let's go in and I will get myself a roll and some cheese," said Prince Andrew who had not yet had time to eat anything. ??"Why didn't you mention it, Prince? I would have offered you something." ??They dismounted and entered the tent. Several officers, with flushed and weary faces, were sitting at the table eating and drinking. ??"Now what does this mean, gentlemen?" said the staff officer, in the reproachful tone of a man who has repeated the same thing more than once. "You know it won't do to leave your posts like this. The prince gave orders that no one should leave his post. Now you, Captain," and he turned to a thin, dirty little artillery officer who without his boots (he had given them to the canteen keeper to dry), in only his stockings, rose when they entered, smiling not altogether comfortably. ??"Well, aren't you ashamed of yourself, Captain Tushin?" he continued. "One would think that as an artillery officer you would set a good example, yet here you are without your boots! The alarm will be sounded and you'll be in a pretty position without your boots!" (The staff officer smiled.) "Kindly return to your posts, gentlemen, all of you, all!" he added in a tone of command.
