Liturgy refers to a religious service.

Rita Khitrovo was a lady-in-waiting to the empress, as well as a nurse at the palace lazaret and friend of Olga and Tatiana. Lyuba was her younger sister.

I think I'll make a thread to put this info (& photos) all in one place since it seems to come up regularly. ;)

January 6, 1918, addressed to ZÚna´de SergÚvna Tolstoy

My dear Zinotchka, many thanks to all of you for postcards. The letters had not yet arrived. I hope that we receive. How did you spend the New Year? We, in any way because there has been no mass and we were lying ago. In exchange, in the morning we were going to church. Olga and I are still in bed with a high fever and skin rash. It was a rubella. This is the son of DÚrÚvenco [Kolia DÚrÚvenko, son of the sailor, not the physician of the emperor with the same name] which has contaminated. He has been sick one day with the temperature. He comes home during the holidays to play with Alexei. I stayed in bed three days and it is only today that I lifted. This morning I went to church. My sisters and Alexei were also removed, but not removed yet. Anastasia was the only one not to fall ill. The weather today is beautiful and despite 15 degrees below zero, the sun is very hot. We remained seated outside, and it was really good. We received your telegram precisely at New Year We thank you very much. Iza [nickname used to Margarita Hitrovo, nurse of the hospital which was attending the Grand Duchess during the war] arrived here. She lives in the house opposite [house Korniloff, where lived the rest of the suite, having followed the imperial family] for two weeks. We have seen at the window, because we did not allow them to come to us. I do not know how long it will remain here. You can never guess in advance their provisions (...), it is true (...). I am pleased to Rita it is always with you. Did you receive my letter of December 26? We had news about Tili, which has delighted. My greetings to Nik. Iak. Saturn and if they are still there. And Dm. How is his health? Did you see Rod? Let them know that I thought about him today for his birthday. I wish you all that is best beloved Zinotchka. May God keep you. I embrace you very much and R. Greetings to those who remember me.

 Tobolsk, February 25, 1918, addressed to ZÚna´de SergÚvna Tolstoy,

My dear Zinotchka, thank you very much for your letter of 20 January. I am glad that thanks to God everything is going well at home. Unfortunately your other letters did not arrive. Probably someone will delight in reading them! Did you receive my letter of February 16? We are going well, no change. Probably you are aware detail by Mr. Gilliard [Pierre Gilliard was the tutor of the Tsarevich, he shared the captivity of the imperial family to Tobolsk]. To allow time to move faster, we learn of small pieces of Theater - which is very good for the study of languages, he and Mr. Gibbs [Sydney Gibbs was the English tutor children of Nicolas II, it also shared the captivity of the imperial family to Tobolsk] are very good and directors, as they have played in front of the coins. Tell ND [doctor in the hospital which was attending the Grand Duchess during the war to TsarskoÚ Selo], as you will see, that his sisters remember, especially when they play, where they had been playing together with him. That did not occur. How is he going? We will be very happy that we write. NN Returned? How are you all? How do you spend the time? At the moment we are working diligently to logging. We have sent many at once. It's so nice to be able to work. The weather was wonderful, quite spring. Today it is a little more cold, but the sun is shining. So, goodbye, my dear and kind Zinotchka. I wish you all that is best. A cordial greeting to your husband and Seriocha [nickname Serge Petrovich Tolstoy]. I embrace you very much, and Daletchka [nickname Nathalia Tolstoy]. I will write another time, not all at once. May God keep you.

 Tobolsk, on 1 March 1918, addressed to ZÚna´de SergÚvna Tolstoy

My dear Zinotchka, thank you very much for your letter for both of us, the beginning of January. I do not know why it has lasted so long. Be good and ask R. She sent this letter to Katia Kulneva and this postcard, do you want the good poster. I think that in this way it will reach more surely. It is a cadet who sent Dad a postcard. We do not know, but he said that Papa spoke to him during a military parade. It's touching. Lili [Lili Dehn, a friend of the Empress] we finally wrote to the campaign. She said that he had received our letters sent by you and asks him to write through you. You will be so good to send him? I hope everything is quiet again in your city. How are you all? Did you receive my letter of 25 and R. Of 27? Ask R. If it is something my Ulyanov and his family? I am not aware of anything. Are they alive? Their property must be occupied by the Romanian because it is in Bessarabia, not far from Kishinev? Rita will explain the correct word but bizarre for the uninitiated. Write me again. I love to receive your letters. Do you know where NN for the moment? I know that his friend was killed in Simferopol and there was also. Your package did not arrive. So, I wish you the best possible. I embrace you all three very much. Greetings to Seriocha and your husband. May God keep you.

On February 3, 1918, addressed to ZÚna´de Serg´Úvna Tolstoy, born Bekhteeff

Thank you, Dear Zinotchka, for your beautiful postcards. We have had a longstanding your news. We are all healthy and we walk a lot. The weather was clear, cold, it is very bright. It's unfortunate, but until now we have not received three packages. I embrace you very much, and yours

Tobolsk, home of the governor, on October 2, 1917, addressed to ZÚna´de Serg´Úvna Tolstoy, born Bekhteeff

My dear and kind ZÚna´da Serg´Úvna, I am so ashamed of you just write today to thank you wholeheartedly for your nice letter of 30 VIII and I have already received here. Thank you very much Dalitchka [nickname Nathalie Petrovna Tolstoy] and I write him another time. We often think you and hope you are in good health. Basically, in general, we have installed. The house was not large but comfortable [it is the governor's house to Tobolsk, where was the imperial family prisoner in August 1917 in the spring of 1918]. There is a balcony where we sit often. The weather here is almost every day magnificent. It is very hot, but the leaves fall hard. We are leaving often become airborne. Behind the kitchen is a small garden with a vegetable garden in the middle. You can visit without any exaggeration, in three minutes. After we closed a portion of the order in front of the house, where we walk, that is backwards and forwards -120 not long. Here, the streets are covered by wooden boards. In many places there are big holes, but everyone runs well. Our windows overlook the street. Watching passers is about our only distraction. We went three times to the church-it was such a great consolation and joy! On Saturdays and other times, we had the typical and vigils here in a room. Of course, it's good, but can not replace a church. There are already a half years that we are no longer went to a true church, because Tsarsko´Ú Selo we had a church on rounds. From our windows we have a splendid view over the mountain, the high city and the cathedral. Too bad we can not see the river. Time passes quickly in a monotone. We work, read, play the piano, interspersed with walks and lessons. That's it. How are you, and you spend your time? This winter resterez-vous locally or partirez-vous to Tsarsko´Ú? I heard that the husband OK Lives in S., not far from home. I do not know if it is there, and I do not know his address. I would be grateful if you hold me to procuriez. If you see Moussia, please tell him that I thank him for his letter and I kiss him. Write directly to my address here or on behalf of the Commissioner Pankratov [Vassily SÚmÚnovitch Pakratov responsible for the supervision of captives], through which all correspondence. So, goodbye, my dear and kind ZÚna´da Serg´Úvna. I often think of you. Your bags are with us. I embrace you very much, and Dalia. Greetings to your husband and Seriocha [nickname Serge Tolstoy]. When a finger touches the small leaf, it smells good. I think that is his name geranium

Tobolsk, January 23, 1918, addressed to ZÚna´de Serg´Úvna Tolstoy, born Bekhteeff

My dear Zinotchka, many thanks for your three postcards and your congratulations. I do not yet have thanked him for your magnificent perfume. We were terribly affected for your attention. The other packages have not arrived yet, but I hope that we will soon receive. What are you doing and how are you? Too bad my letter have delayed and R. Is party. Is Nik. DM. He was already made? Olga calls telling Dalia [nickname Nathalia Petrovna Tolstoy] she apologized many have written his name in a way wrong, but this time we querellions: it is said that Nathalie and me to Daria. Who is right? Here, it's cold now, but the sun shines and even pleasantly warms up a bit through the windows. Here, it's an event when the mail arrives, and we feel a great joy. We read in turn. These days for my birthday, I received many letters. R. Remain for a long time with you? Have you seen Nik. Iak. ? I would be very happy if you write. I wish you much happiness expensive Zinotchka. May God keep you
