The old woman came back. "Here, sir: as we say ten copecks the rouble a month, so I must take fifteen copecks from a rouble  and a half for the month in advance. But for the two roubles I lent you before, you owe me now  twenty copecks on the same reckoning in advance. That makes thirty-five copecks altogether. So I  must give you a rouble and fifteen copecks for the watch. Here it is." "What! only a rouble and fifteen copecks now!"
