ON THIS DATE IN THEIR OWN WORDS: NICHOLAS II – 2 MARCH, 1913.
From the 1913 diary of Nicholas II:
2nd March. Saturday. Today we had the chance to receive Holy Communion. By the end of obednya Kedrinsky walked up to Tatiana’s [room] and also gave her communion! She was not feeling too badly and slept for two hours during the day. Took a walk until 12 o’cl.; it rained all day. Received Count Fredericks with a report. He had breakfast with us. Olga arrived; worked at the tower and took a walk. At 6 ½ went to the dear regiment church. After dinner studied and read.
