I've got one more letter I didn't share before.

March 30, 1878
My Darling Willy,
I shall try to write a love letter as you write me, since I did say yes – it shall be my first, I feel very shy about it, but I do love you so very much and I want you to know it.
Don’t call yourself a cripple or call your arm useless, you can do so many things you used to say you would never be able to do. You climbed that tree; you can play the piano very well now. I don’t want you to feel how you said you do in that last letter. Your arm is NOT useless, and I could not love you better than I do if you had two FULLY capable arms. It – I do not know how to say what I want to say in a letter – but I must try – your arm and hand are beautiful in my eyes. I want to help you and I don’t want you to ever feel what you said in your last letter, it makes me cry.
I must say again – your arm and hand are Beautiful in my eyes; it is Very good at certain things.
I kiss you, your arm, and where you liked it best,
Your Ella who loves you dearly.

The Hohenzollern / Letters from Ella to Wilhelm

Here are all the letters I found from Ella to Wilhelm in chronological order, a few more than I posted before:

November 22 1870
Dear Willy,
Victoria and Irene and I are all very well and Grosmama and Grospapa too. Is Mama better? And Baby? How is your Mama and baby Sophie? Our best wishes for her birthday. We heard of Papa’s getting the Iron Cross and were very glad. I hope you and Harry are well. I have the shell you gave me. Good-bye,
Your loving cousin Ella

January 24, 1873
Dear Willy,
I hope you get this for the 27th. Many happy returns. I send you a little drawing I did which I thought you would like. Mama and Papa and sisters send their love and best wishes for your birthday.
Your loving cousin Ella

February 1876
Dearest Willy,
Thank you for your dear letter and the book and flower. I hope your leg is better. The little bird is very pretty. I hope we will see you and Harry soon again. We are all very well. Mama and Papa and Sisters all send their love and many kisses XXX
Your very loving cousin, Ella

December 15 1877
Dearest Willy,
We are here in Potsdam and we miss you and Harry very much. Yesterday we got the new volume about Grandpapa, Mama and your Mama have taken turns reading aloud from it. I remember you telling your memory of him and how I wish we could have known him. We shall be very glad to have you coming again after not seeing you the last months. The little ones are rushing about and playing and making such noise I cannot write more. Little May runs about waving her arms like she wants to fly. All send their love and many kisses XXX
I miss You.
Your very loving cousin Ella

March 15 1878
Dearest Willy,
Thank you for the book I just received. I was sorry you had stopped just at that spot and wished for you to go on. I shall read it myself now and enjoy it very much. But did Harry get to hear it? It was Grandmama’s present for him, I shall send it back if he has not tho I do not like to have to do so.
I send you what I was painting – tho’ it is not half so good and pretty as I should have liked. My foot is much better and I was up a little today. Mama says Grosmama is much better.
In three weeks it will be 3 years since – you remember in April 75?
Your very loving cousin, Ella

Darling Willy,
I found what you left in the book and it is so sweet – I must write to you tho I do not have much to say and we only said good-bye two hours ago. Yes in 73 is when – I don’t know if I should write it here –I shall just say that I would be able to say the same as you did in your note, as much as a child could, since I was only 8 then. I think of the Hothouse – of M 9th & of the 5th & the 5th 3 years ago – when you first said something and the first

Darling Willy,
You come this time on Mama’s birthday I think?  So you will be here 4 days this time and 2 times this month. Mama has not been well again, I hope she will be better soon. We shall not have the things like last year as Mama is not well. I got your poem - it is very sweet. I send you a flower from the back of the H- - h - - -e – you know where.
I miss you. A loving k- - -, your Ella

Does anyone know who Dmitri's godparents were? and his sister Maria's too for that matter - besides Serge and Dagmar.

8
Does anyone have pictures of the children of Marie de Grancy who was a lady in waiting to Alice? I am especially looking for pictures of her youngest son.

If you read the second letter, it sounds very like other letters Queen Victoria wrote about births - "had a very easy time"... "Only lasted about 4 hours" etc. - but the owner of the letters (who's name I am not allowed to disclose at this time) said this letter was about Ella. When I read it it sounds like it could be - "Princess C of H" would be Ludwig IV's mother - E would be Ella - "Poor A" "distressed that she could not be with E during this time" would be Alice - it is at the end of 1878 when the rest of the family was sick - Ella hadn't been told of May "her little sister"'s death. "it is 2" - Twins??

 :o Could it be that... Wilhelm got Ella pregnant when she was 13?!

Has anyone else noticed the resemblance between Duchess of Gloucester - Alice Montague - and Anastasia Nikolaevna?
 <div class="tumblr-post" data-href="<a href="https://neuespalais.tumblr.com/post/156053793964/has-anyone-noticed-the-resemblance-between">https://neuespalais.tumblr.com/post/156053793964/has-anyone-noticed-the-resemblance-between</a></div>

And the resemblance of her husband Henry to Kaiser Wilhelm II - look at pictures of them compared to each other. I cannot see him without thinking "Wilhelm!". Where would he get those genetics? - Their related on Queen Victoria's side of the family but Wilhelm gets that look from Fritz right? and also his name - Henry William Frederick Albert - and he's said to be named after Wilhelm and Henry of Prussia.

This is Henry of Gloucester: http://images.npg.org.uk/800_800/9/9/mw169599.jpg
And Wilhelm's son Joachim: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/12/Prince_Joachim_of_Prussia_in_uniform.jpg
The eyes - and other things look so much alike.

Alexandra Feodorovna / Re: Correspondence, Diaries, Journals and Her Bible
« on: November 28, 2016, 02:40:07 PM »
I have found Alix's letter to Queen Victoria written after her father's death in German and in Russian: in Alexandra - die letzte Zarin - and in Elisabeth Heresh's book - does anyone have the English original?

From Heresh's book http://www.e-reading.club/bookreader.php/1023250/Heresh_-_Aleksandra.html#n_40
Letter from Alix to Queen Victoria, 18.3.1892, RAZ 174/23.

"«…я едва могу писать, чувствую себя совершенно разбитой. Эта невосполнимая потеря кажется мне почти невыносимой, неизвестно, как жить дальше тому, у кого отняли солнечный свет. И все же надо набраться мужества и попытаться быть, как Он, и делать то, чего желал бы Он. О, как ужасно[38] мы за ним скучаем, с каждым днем все сильнее. (…) Для меня никогда не было большего ангела, такого хорошего, такого любезного, доброго, любимого. Он был всем для меня, и чем больше мы оба бывали вместе, тем ближе я ему становилась, и все же мы не смогли его уберечь. (…) Но мы должны смириться с этой утратой, ибо я уверена, что наш небесный отец не взял бы его от нас, если бы не хотел избавить от дальнейших страданий на земле (…)

Бедный милый Эрни так неожиданно оказался в таком положении[39], какая большая ответственность легла на его молодые плечи. Он такой мужественный и дельный, милый парень. Ему я теперь должна пожертвовать всю себя и попытаться помочь, насколько это в моих силах, и я уверена, что Ты, любимая бабушка, всегда готова даровать ему совет и любовь, когда в том будет необходимость…»"

That picture is taken in 1908. The boy is Dickie of Battenberg - Victoria and Louis of Battenberg's youngest son.

Doesn't Ella look... different in that picture? I thought it could be Alix too at first - but I thought that because she looks pregnant.
