The return of Ivan Petrovitch did not fit in with her plans; while the Princess Kubensky kept him with her, she had hoped to receive at least half of her father's estate; in her avarice, too, she was like her grandmother.
Возвращение Ивана Петровича ей пришлось не по нутру; пока княжна Кубенская держала его у себя, она надеялась получить по крайней мере половину отцовского имения: она и по скупости вышла в бабку.

I gasped, wiping my fingers on a starched white napkin and sitting up on the couch with my grandmother.
