In case part of a quotation is missing, missing words should be replaced by <…> (Russian quotation) or ... (English quotation).




«<…> но теперь ему казалось, что он всё это говорил и тогда, все эти самые слова, и что про эту “мушку” Ипполит взял у него самого, из его тогдашних слов и слез».


“‘Lord!’ he prayed, ‘show me my way; I renounce this cursed… dream of mine!’”
