ON THIS DATE IN THEIR OWN WORDS: EMPRESS ALEXANDRA. 5 NOVEMBER, 1916.
1916 note from Empress Alexandra to Grand Duchess Tatiana
5 November, 1916. My dear, Anya asked me to come to the laying of the foundation of the church at 12.30 (Our Friend will be there). Can at least one of you four come with me, otherwise I will be completely alone, as I do not have even one lady in waiting?
