That is  very welcome, nena.  A great help to everyone who reads this.
  I will note that Nicholas cites the various books he reads, often aloud to the family in the evening.  I am not  mentioning them, mainly because those readings are mentioned elsewhere and I do not know the authors for the most part.
 Next page-
 27 Dec continued. Walk with Tatiana & Maria.  Accepted  Rayeva.  After tea- cinema. Same content as at Moglieve [?]  Aleksey right hand  from injury fell ill, poor, suffered before the night.
 28 Dec. Accepted Dobrovol'skogo [?] * READ Shirinsky-Shikhmatov on the matters of Palestine.
  Aleksey is better. Breakfast with  with Anya & Groten. Walk with daughters. Accepted Maksimovich
 29 Dec.  Accepted Marmantova and the Il'lna on Red Cross. Then Scheglovitch. Then Fredericks and Tanwyev. Aleksey felt well but lay nevertheless.
 30 Dec.  English ambassador, b'yukenana[?] & Barka. Ural Cossacks deputation. Walk with daughters, Botkin.
 31 Dec. accepted Shuvayeva, Kul'chitskogo [?] and Frederickssa.
 Aleksey hand entirely well. Walk with children.  Accepted gen. of Beylayev then the vsenoschchnoy {??] Midnight public prayer.
 
 I will pause here to comment- one notices, in just these few days how many times
 Nicholas mentions the time he spends with his children, but Alexandra has not been mentioned once. AV is at breakfast a few times, where was the Empress? Just an interesting point on my part...

 1917
 1 Jan.  With daughters to mass.  Aleksey arose.   Mish with the kot[orym] [?] Left for large palace for reception of ministers. ambassodrs, etc.
 Uniform of  "plastunskoy{?}
 2 Jan. Accepted Grigorvichka, Rittkha..... walk in park with daughters . Protopopov, then Taneyev.
 3 Jan. Voyekov, then Shuyaeva. depart.  Pokrovsky. doctor kostrisky [?] who arrived from Yalta. Walk with daughters. Accepted Shakhovskogo.
 Farewell with Aleksey [back to stavka?].
 

 
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

Thank you Mr. Hall!

'kotorym' means 'which', while 'vsenoschchnoy' means 'night'. Other words are names, mostly.

To everyone who is interested in this chronology,  Mr. Hall has sent me some of the pages from Nicholas II's diary to sort and post.  However, I have some family issues that I need to address right now.

I will be watching my moderation threads, but I will be posting less for a while.

If anyone wants to keep posting, please do so.

I am still very interested in how much Nicholas and Alexandra travelled during their reign and the itinerary of Nicholas's Trip to the Far East as a Tsarevich.  I hope you are , too.

I am not quite sure this is the right thread for this (if not, please can someone post it elsewhere?), but I have uploaded an article about Nicholas's travels in 1890-1 to the other royal site I contribute to....

Hi, is there a map available of the railroad routes when the tsar travelled by rail. One that shows in detail all the routes from date range of one year before the executions up to the last time he travelled by train.

Many Thanks.

We forget his trip to Italy in 1902. I wonder why Alexandra didn't went with him!

Hello;

I'm from Mar del Plata, Argentina. It's said  that Nicholas II was at the opening of the luxurious Bristol Hotel here, in Mar del Plata, on January 8, 1888. I found an article of the Caras y Caretas magazine about it (issue #1635, 02/01/1930)

The article said that the tsarevich was a Naval Cadet on instruction trip. May it be true? Or is a mistake, maybe another member of the Imperial Family was here? I couldn't found nothing about this in other sources.

Thanks in advance, and sorry for my english...

Hi, Luciano. Your English is very good!

I'm from Mar del Plata, Argentina. It's said  that Nicholas II was at the opening of the luxurious Bristol Hotel here, in Mar del Plata, on January 8, 1888. I found an article of the Caras y Caretas magazine about it (issue #1635, 02/01/1930)

The article said that the tsarevich was a Naval Cadet on instruction trip. May it be true? Or is a mistake, maybe another member of the Imperial Family was here? I couldn't found nothing about this in other sources.

It was probably another member of the Imperial Family. Nicholas was not in the navy and he only visited the Eastern Hemisphere in his famous "grand tour", the aptly named eastern journey in 1890–1891.

My guess is that it was Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich.
