The doctor about whom I was inquiring was Doctor Sergei Pavlovich Botkin, Imperial Court Physician and father of Doctor Evgenie Botkin, Imperial Court Physician. I did find a link about the Military Medical Museum below:

What an interesting site David, I would like to visit that museum.  Too bad the part about Dr. S. Botkin was in Russian....I would like to have read that part too.

Does anyone know if any of Dr. Eugene Botkin's grandchildren became Physicians?

I may have posted this elsewhere.

Dr Eugene Botkin's father was the noted physician Sergius, who is known as "The Father of Russian Medicine."

Sergius was the son of Peter Botkin a fabulously wealthy merchant who wanted to send Sergius into the Army (I think because he was not interested in the family business) but instead turned over his care to a half=brother Vassily, who was a famous "Liberal" in his younger days, friend of Herzen, patron of Gogol and others - and a "businessman."

Sergius became personal physician (and  friend) to Alexander II and by succession to Alexander III, who would have no others after Sergius died.

Sergius had other son's who were physicians. Eugene's older brother Sergei was head of the Military Medical School (if I remember correctly). Sergei married the daughter of Paul Treytchakov(sp?) the noted art patron.
There are two famous portraits of Sergius and Sergei in that collection.

The memoirs of Tatiana Melnik-Botkina include a few of her father's letters. I believe I got my copy from kniga.com. It's called Vospominaniya O Tsarskoi Cem'e.

Yes, there's a lot of letters in Tatiana's books ...

My great Uncle, Constantin Melnik, had the privilege to see the last Dr Botkin's letter remained in the Russian's archive, during his trip for the Burial ceremony of Imperial Family, servants and of course his grandfather Dr Botkin.

..Arleen

He had by his daughter Tatiana 3 grandchildren (2 Girls, 1 boy), and no physician.
But he had 10 great grandchildren (7 girls and 3 boys), and 2 Boys are surgeons.

Thank you so much for the letter Nicolas. It is interesting that he says the same sentence "I am dead" as he said in a letter addressed to his children, which I read but can not remember where.

Thanks again
Amelia

Very interesting, this fatalistic quote that foretold his fate.  Would someone be so kind as to provide the context translated to English, maybe the sentences before and after?

My english is so bad to translate all the letter but the last sentence is :
E. BOTKINE was interrupted in the middle of a word on the night of July 17, 1918

Thanks Nicolas.  How very chilling and sad.

I was actually wondering about the point where he said "I am dead", how he came to mention that.  Don't struggle to translate more if you find it difficult, I'll try an online translator.

BTW, do not think poorly of your English skills. I truly admire anyone who is able to understand other languages than their native tongue.  You do very well.  I don't think I'm alone when I say I'm glad you found this place and thanks for sharing here.

Regards,
Terry

It's a pleasure Terry, i'm glad to share this kind of informations with people who are interested by this part of History.

In this french version we don't know how he know they will die ... i'm not sure we will learn more in the Russian version ... i think the translataion was made by my great Uncle and i can try to have more information about that.

Thank for your interst
Nicolas
