ON THIS DATE IN THEIR OWN WORDS: ANASTASIA ROMANOV AND ALEXEI ROMANOV – 6 MARCH, 1916.
1916 letter from Anastasia Romanov to Nicholas II:
6 March. Well I greet you with a good morning. We already went to church and had breakfast with Isa too. And now Von Nerik, a commander from my regiment was here to [see] me. His face is most simple, not very German as a face. He said that the regiment is stationed in the same spot, and right now he is in reserves only for 12 days, and then they will sit in the trenches for 12 days, but still every day about 10 or more lower ranks are wounded, but very few officers, so all is well. We will now go to the Grand Palace, this is not fun, and they will go riding, and then to Anya’s, and a magician will be there, a very good one I think. Well I must go get dressed. I give you an awfully huge kiss. Regards to all yours. Your loving loyal and faithful Kaspiyitz. May God keep you. Sleep well.
