From 1913 diary of Olga Romanov:


“Saturday. 27 July. Fireworks. We 2 walked around Peterhof with Aunt and Lori Yertsen. They took pictures of the most beautiful sites. Sunny. At 9 1/2 Papa left for maneuvers and returned at 2 o’cl. Had tea with Papa, Mama and the Aunt. Had dinner with Mama and the Aunt. Papa had dinner with the French. [We] played tennis with Anya. It started to rain but then it ended. Went to church. Mama’s face aches, but her head[ache] is better. Played cards and smoked.”
