8 May 1913

My darling sweet dear Papa!!!

I want to see you so much.  I have just finished my arithmetic lesson, I think I did quite well.  We are going to the nurses' school.  I am very glad.  Today is is rainy and very damp.  I am in Tatiana's room.  Tatiana and Olga are here.
When you see Boba, tell him I'm going to beat him again and that my hands are itching.

I'm trying very hard to breed worms, and Olga says I think, which isn't true.  When you come I am going to bathe in your bath.  I hope you haven't forgotten the story I told you during our walk.

I am sitting picking my nose with my left hand.  Olga wanted to biff [smack] me one but I escaped her swinish hand.  When you come I will meet you at the station.  Be happy and healthy.

A big squeeze to your hand and face.  Thinking of you.  Love you always, everywhere.

Anastasia


Question: Who is Boba?

Another question (rather silly, I guess). Did the girls (at least OT) ever plucked their eyebrows? LOL, because on some pictures (close up) I noticed that their brows looked as if it was plucked? :rolleyes:

There's been many threads about body hair.  :D I think it was likely they did pluck or shave at least a little. Especially for formal photos. They wouldn't look exactly formal with thick eyebrows or hairy pits.

Eyebrows are one thing, but I certainly can't think of a single photo in which underarm hair would have half a chance of showing...

I found this site while looking pics of the romanovs. It's wierd IMHO. Your thoughts? Click on 'The DNA connection.' They seem to say that Stalin was the person that ordered their execution! Stalin wasn't until the 1940-50's, right?
P.S. Even if Alix was the daughter of this queen, she wouldn't be princess of wales. Only the wife of the prince of wales is the princess of wales. ;D Just sayin'! This site is full of factual errors!  ::) Will they ever learn?

Yeah, that is weird.....
And Stalin was after Lenin died, 1930's and 40's, and they seem to say that because the Romanovs were killed, it gave Stalin power and caused him to be a murderer. Again, that site is weird!

None of that stuff is true it is a fake those pictures are not of the same person. Those are other people trying to pretend to be members of the family. :)

I was wondering.. everyone calls the grand duchesses OTMA, and a lot of books, sites etc say that they signed their letters and stuff with it. But I actually never saw it anywhere! Someone knows more about it?

There are a couple of photos of letters, postcards, and telegrams with that signature on it.  I believe that some of these photos were posted somewhere on here.  If not, a good example is Louis Mountbatten's book Mountbatten: Eighty Years in Pictures

I just the other day ran across a poem composed to "OTMA" by Pyotr Petrovich in 1910. It's on page 90 of Nicholas II: The Imperial Family. Unfortunately, I can't scan the image without breaking the binding of the book....
