This is a short novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky about a young tutor in the employment of a formerly wealthy Russian general. The Russian General is indebted to the Frenchman de Griers and has mortgaged his property in Russia to help pay for a portion of his debt. After learning of a wealthy Aunt's illness, the General sends telegrams to Moscow and waits for impending demise. He expects his inheritance to pay his debts and gain Mademoiselle Blanche de Cominge's hand in marriage. -Wikipedia
