From the 1913 diary of Olga Romanov:

“Monday. 21 October. At 9 in the morning went to obednya and received communion. After that had tea all together.  I sat on Mama’s balcony and read. The sisters walked with Mama. Papa and Aleksei rode in a dvoika .  Had breakfast and dinner all together upstairs. Played tennis in the afternoon.  I sat with Mama and had an amusing conversation with N.P.   Papa, T, Anya and Rodionov played tennis. 11 degrees in the shade, 23 – in the sun.  Had tea as usual. [It is] unbearable not to see S. for so long. 8 degrees in the evening.  Sat with Mama. Anya pasted postcards. Papa read in his [room].
