    Description :

    “Poor Kovalyev almost lost his mind. He did not know what to make of this most extraordinary occurrence. Indeed, how could one explain the fact that a nose, which only the previous days had still been attached to his face, unable to ride or walk, was now wearing a uniform! He set off in pursuit of the carriage, which, fortunately, did not go far before stopping in front of the Kazan Cathedral.

    He hastened into the cathedral, pushed his way through the row of old beggar women in rags, leaving only two slits for the eyes, a sight, which before had always caused him mirth, and entered the church. There were but few worshippers there: they all stood by the entrance. Kovalyev felt so upset that he was in no condition to pray and searched with his eyes for the gentleman in all the church corners. At last he saw him standing to one side. The Nose had completely hidden his face in his big stand-up collar and was praying in an attitude of utmost piety.”
