Dostoevsky, F. (n.d.). The Crocodile. Retrieved from

Excerpt: On the thirteenth of January of this present year, 1865, at halfpast twelve in the day, Elena Ivanovna, the wife of my cultured friend Ivan Matveitch, who is a colleague in the same department, and may be said to be a distant relation of mine, too, expressed the desire to see the crocodile now on view at a fixed charge in the Arcade. As Ivan Matveitch had already in his pocket his ticket for a tour abroad (not so much for the sake of his health as for the improvement of his mind), and was consequently free from his official duties and had nothing whatever to do that morning, he offered no objection to his wife?s irresistible fancy, but was positively aflame with curiosity himself.
