From the 1916 diary of Tatiana Romanov:
Saturday, 22 October. In the morning [we] two went with Mama to “Znamenie”, from there – to the infirmary. Took photographs in two stages in the sitting room, since last time the pictures did not come out. Later dressings for Syroboyarsky, Bogdanov. The others – Mama. Also took photographs in three other wards. In between sat with Volodya in the hallway. Later played bloshki [tiddlywinks] with Volodya, Petrov and Lieutenant Girs. Later the lieutenant had gone and was replaced by – Prince Eristov. Then said goodbye to Volodya.
