Levin tried again to move away on tiptoe, but the sick man stirred again and said: "Don't go.
" * * * * * * * * The dawn came; the sick man's condition was unchanged.
Levin stealthily withdrew his hand, and without looking at the dying man, went off to his own room and went to sleep.
When he woke up, instead of news of his brother's death which he expected, he learned that the sick man had returned to his earlier condition.
