ON THIS DATE IN THEIR OWN WORDS: NICHOLAS II – 22 APRIL, 1904
From the 1904 diary of Nicholas II:
22nd April. Thursday. At one in the morning went to the same duck hunt, this time got lucky and killed five grouses. The night was wonderful. Returned home at 5 ¼. Slept until 9 ¾. There were three reports. Had breakfast alone together. Took a long walk. After tea I gifted Alix with a few things. Had dinner and spent the evening alone together.
