Nicholas's speech at the Duma?
« on: October 18, 2012, 11:06:36 AM »
On April 27, 1906 the Duma officially opened and Nicholas II gave a speech during their opening ceremony. Does anyone know where to find that speech or roughly what was said? Was he reading aloud the Manifesto or, as I would assume, speaking from a prepared speech before the two chambers and other attendees?
