- Drag him on the stable and pour to him lashes! – the Governor has strictly ordered to local men.

Chichikov tried to be defended by a table. But tall men approached him closer and closer.

The heads of all have turned toward an open window. Using the happy moment, Chichikov has rushed to an exit.
