Dmitri feels that there is still a possibility that Grushenka may accept him as her husband, but his  problem is that if she does accept him, he cannot rightfully carry her away until he repays the money  he owes Katerina Ivanovna. In a desperate effort to find a solution, he contrives a fantastic scheme.  He goes to old Samsonov — Grushenka's previous protector — and offers him the rights to some  property that he believes the law courts might take away from Fyodor and give to him if the old  merchant will immediately give him 3,000 rubles. The merchant, of course, refuses and plays a trick  on Dmitri: he sends him off to the country to see a merchant named Lyagavy, who is bargaining with  Fyodor for this very property.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
