ON THIS DATE IN THEIR OWN WORDS: ALEXEI ROMANOV. 3 APRIL, 1918
1918 letter from Alexei Romanov:
To Kolya (Tobolsk, 3 April, 1918).
Dear Niki, I am very grateful for the cannon. I hope that we will see each other soon. Regards to Mother, Grandmother and Fefer. My handwriting is bad because I am lying in bed. My leg hurts, but I think it will soon be better.
