Here the sound judgment of Totski stood him in good stead. He realized that Nastasia Philipovna must be well aware that she could do nothing by legal means to injure him, and that her flashing eyes betrayed some entirely different intention.
Но тут-то и пригодилась Тоцкому его верность взгляда: он сумел разгадать, что Настасья Филипповна и сама отлично понимает, как безвредна она в смысле юридическом, но что у ней совсем другое на уме и... в сверкавших глазах ее.

And during the man's absence, and with great labour and a Johnson's Dictionary, which stood them in much stead, Rawdon and his second composed a letter, which the latter was to send to Lord Steyne.

He cast down the fetish of exercise, damning with the contemptuous word pot-hunters all those who devoted themselves to its various forms; and Philip did not realise that he was merely putting up in its stead the other fetish of culture.
