But he doesn't steal, that's one thing, and he's not a gossip, he holds his tongue, and doesn't wash our dirty linen in public. He makes capital fish pasties too. But, damn him, is he worth talking about so much?"
Да не украдет он, вот что, не сплетник он, молчит, из дому copy не вынесет, кулебяки славно печет, да к тому же ко всему и чорт с ним по правде-то, так стоит ли об нем говорить?

For a whole month the town was full of gossip about this scandal, and it came to such a pass that Dounia and I dared not even go to church on account of the contemptuous looks, whispers, and even remarks made aloud about us.
Целый месяц у нас по всему городу ходили сплетни об этой истории, и до того уж дошло, что нам даже в церковь нельзя было ходить с Дуней от презрительных взглядов и шептаний, и даже вслух при нас были разговоры.
