The superintendent, bent on an economical administration, had persuaded me to do the work of both men for thirty dollars a month.
On the contrary, the superintendent warned everybody not to tell me.
He had been warned by the superintendent not to tell me, and in telling me he was risking his job.
This was foolish of me, I know; but I resolved to continue the work long enough to prove to the superintendent that I could do it without breaking down.
The Superintendent decided to begin by examining the boudoir, and, that done, to examine the servants next.
They bounced out of their comers, whisked up-stairs in a body to Miss Rachel's room (Rosanna Spearman being carried away among them this time), burst in on Superintendent Seegrave, and, all looking equally guilty, summoned him to say which of them he suspected, at once.
Superintendent proved equal to the occasion; he looked at them with his resolute eye, and he cowed them with his military voice.
The Superintendent finished his examination of the room, and, making nothing of it, asked me who had first discovered the robbery.
Superintendent proved to be a little too sharp with Penelope at starting.
Superintendent next asked to see Miss Rachel herself.
Superintendent, who tried to speak to her, pale as death, and wrapped up strangely in her own thoughts, she left the room, and went down to her cousins on the terrace.
The angry assistant superintendent was obviously disconcerted.
The assistant superintendent, still shaken by Raskolnikov's disrespect, still fuming and obviously anxious to keep up his wounded dignity, pounced on the unfortunate smart lady, who had been gazing at him ever since he came in with an exceedingly silly smile.
This was the superintendent of the district himself, Nikodim Fomitch.
