Молитва Годунова.
Константин Юдин  «—Усики? – повторил Легран, которого наш спор почему-то привел в дурное расположение духа. – Разве вы их не видите? Я нарисовал их в точности, как в натуре. Думаю, что большего вы от меня не потребуете». Э. По. «Золотой жук». В XI томе «Истории Государства Российского» Карамзин поместил молитву, составленную по велению Бориса Годунова, «о душевном спасении и телесном здравии слуги Божия, царя Всевышним избранного и превознесенного, самодержца всей Восточной страны и Северной; о царице и детях их; о благоденствии и тишине отечества и церкви под скиптром единого христианского венценосца в мире, чтобы все иные властители пред ним уклонялись и рабски служили ему, величая имя его от моря до моря и до конца вселенныя; чтобы россияне всегда с умилением славили Бога за такого монарха, коего ум есть пучина мудрости, а сердце исполнено любви и долготерпения; чтобы все земли трепетали меча нашего, а земля Русская непрестанно высилась и расширялась; чтобы юные, цветущие ветви Борисова дому возросли благословением Небесным и непрерывно осеняли оную до скончания веков!
