i don't have a copy of mandelshtam's poem handy and would like to be sure that it says -  ... в подорожную спешит  and not - ...с подорожною спешит since подорожная to me is a travel document (sort of voucher) one has to show at the station. many thanks
vladimir

CK: in Russian the safety razor is not a 'Vilkinsonka,' but a Zhiletka, as I wrote!
 
Carolyn's attempt to shave using a waistcoat reminds me of Mandelshtam's verses:
 
Один еврей, должно быть, комсомолец,
Живописать решил дворянский старый быт:
На закладной под звуки колоколец
Помещик в подорожную спешит.
