In a moment or two the man-servant appeared from the inner apartment, crossed the floor and presently reappeared, ushering
in a visitor.
He had finished his professional commentary by flinging open a folding door, and ushering
the party into a broad hall, which was filled with a great number of people who were waiting, like themselves, for an audience.
and, the ring being repeated, went to the door, whence he presently returned, ushering
in, by the name of Mr Bonney, a pale gentleman in a violent hurry, who, with his hair standing up in great disorder all over his head, and a very narrow white cravat tied loosely round his throat, looked as if he had been knocked up in the night and had not dressed himself since.
Pray walk in," said the lawyer, addressing Alexey Alexandrovitch; and, gloomily ushering
Karenin in before him, he closed the door.
The porter reappeared ushering
in a smart-looking young man, who carried a shiny coachman's hat in his hand.
