ON THIS DATE IN THEIR OWN WORDS: NICHOLAS II – 6 MAY, 1915

 From the 1915 diary of Nicholas II:

6th May. Wednesday. Pouring rain during the night, it got cooler and the day remained overcast. Before the morning tea, the suite and the people wished me a happy birthday.  At 10 o’cl. went to [hear] a report, then to obednya. Had breakfast with everyone in the tent behind Nikolasha’s train. Received Engalychev with a report. Took a walk around half the woods. Read and responded to telegrams. After dinner played some dominoes.
