They--that is, Vronsky-- had a trainer, an Englishman, first-rate in his own line, but a drunkard.
He's completely given up to drink--delirium tremens-- and the family were cast on the world.
She saw them, helped them, got more and more interested in them, and now the whole family is on her hands.
But not by way of patronage, you know, helping with money; she's herself preparing the boys in Russian for the high school, and she's taken the little girl to live with her.
But you'll see her for yourself.
