Chichikov for his part was very glad to settle down for a time in the house of so peaceful and quiet a man. He was tired of his gypsy life. To have a rest even for only a month in a beautiful country place in view of the fields and at the time of approaching spring was beneficial even from the point of view of his haemorrhoids. It would have been hard to find a better spot for a rest.
