Thank you very much!

Here is something a little different. In 1916, the famous Russian poet, Sergei Yesenin, dedicated this poem to the grand duchesses for their nursing efforts at the infirmary. I translated it today and will include it in the book I think, since it would be appropriate.

How lovely! It must have been very inspiring to have them walk among you while bed ridden and injured.
Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

Pleas pardon my nitpick:
Tatiana was born 29 May old style -- today is 16 May old style.
THE LOST CROWN: A Novel of Romanov Russia -- now in paperback!

I used 29th of May to match the date in the letters. But I will post another birthday tribute on the corresponding June date (10 June) if it will make you happy ;) :)
