11. I have known him for a long time and I can say that he is a very honest man.
12. The meeting has begun. Comrade A. is making a report on the international situation.
13. If he comes after I have left (or: I leave) give him the letter that is lying on the table.
14. The sea has (already) been rough for a few days and there has been no ship for Batumi since Monday. We shall leave Odessa as soon as there is a ship.
15. I had been walking about an hour when at last I saw a little house near the river. I understood at once that it was the house about which Comrade A. had told me. I went up to the house and knocked. A woman was sitting at the window and reading. Hearing the knock she stood up and went to the door.
16. Today I went to the Ministry to see Comrade A. on business. We had arranged to meet at four o'clock in the afternoon. When I came to the Ministry, the secretary told me that Comrade A. had not returned yet from the conference and asked me to wait a little. I sat down on a chair and began to read a newspaper which I had bought on the way to the Ministry. While I was reading the newspaper, Comrade A. came. He said that he was late, as the conference had ended later that he had expected.
17. Last night I was waiting for a (or: the - , .) bus in Gorki Street. I noticed that a (or: the) man who was standing near me was looking at me attentively. I recognized my friend Comrade A., with whom I had gone to school. I had not seen him since 1940 and was very glad that I had met him.
