They meet Luzhin outside the apartment, and at the meeting, Luzhin relates some additional stories  about Svidrigailov. They include one about his supposed seduction of a 15-year-old deaf and dumb  girl who later hanged herself. Another is about Svidrigailov's servant Philip who hanged himself as a  result of Svidrigailov's beatings and mockery. Luzhin concludes that Svidrigailov is the most horrible,  "the most depraved, the most completely abandoned to vice" of anyone he knows. Dunya's view of  each episode differs; for example, she heard that the servant Philip was addicted to drugs and that  the other servants were good and loyal to Svidrigailov. Luzhin is offended that his "fiancée"  seemingly defends Svidrigailov. Raskolnikov reveals that Marfa Petrovna has left Dunya 3,000  rubles, which she should receive soon. When Rodya refuses to tell about his interview with Svidrigailov, Luzhin takes it as a personal affront
