When I told him how Stebelkov asked about Dergatchev he made me repeat the question again, and seemed to ponder gravely over it, though he did laugh in the end.
О том, как Стебельков расспрашивал про Дергачева, он заставил повторить два раза и даже задумался; впрочем, все-таки под конец усмехнулся.
