I am trying to read the piece of first entry, but can not succed in that. Could someone help me? Perhaps Hikaru? I could read the folowing. [?] mean a word I could not read.

[?] i dnyom sidela. Poshli (or vyshli?) [?] [?] [?] s Al. i pili chai. Tam solntse i horosho. Fedossia Step. prinesla 2. (vtoruyu) nebolshuyu [?] Aninoi [?] T[emperatura] 36,4 - 37- 37,1 1/2.

As you see, I could not understand the most important words... Please, help!!
Hikaru, I do not think that Olga Voronova came at the begining of the Revolution. I is probably an other Olga. But we should read her Memories to be certain. I could not find them in Moscow, perhaps someone has them?

I checked that Voronov was in vacation in the march of 1917.
So technically, if he was in Petersburg Olga could visit
Dutchess Olga.
But, maybe it was another one.

In the one russian article about Olga and Voronov I have found the several extracts from Olga 's diaries.
I would like to post them
I will post them in Russian and then in English.
So anybody could tune my translation, if any:

"Pyatnitsa Livadiya 13 Sentyabrya 1913:
Sperva sidela doma iz-za dozhdya, potom s Papa po vinogradnikam hodila. K zavraku byli T, S, Kozhevnikov i Glebov. Dnyom Papa poshol gulyaty s tremya svitnymy , a my ostalisy doma i ya ne zaleyu, tak kak moyo sokrovishce bylo i T. byli  u Mama v komnate. S. zapisyval na list poslednie veschi dlya bazara. Ya sidela okolo. Tak radovalasy ego uvidety. ..Nikogo ne videla krome nego......... v drugoy komnate igrali v karty , ya dlya nego na royale poigrala kogda Papa vernulsha pili chay. ... U Mama golova bolela. Poshli ko vsenochnoy . Vecherom Papa primimal Prokopy lichno. My rabotali - 12 gradusov"
" Petrovsky regiment. Friday. Livadia 13th September.
1913 year.
Firstly I sitted at home because of the rain. Then I walked vignyards together with Papa.  T. (Tatiana?) , S. (Sokrovishce , tresure or Schastie - happiness - i.e. Pavel Voronov ) Kozhevnikov and Zlebov (Glebov?)
Afternoon Papa went to walk with three retinue people, but we stayed home. And I feel no sorry about it because My S. was and T.S. was at my Mom's room. S. entered into list last things for the bazaar. I sitted near him and was so happy to see him. I saw nobody but him. .. at other room played tramps then I played piano for him then Papa returned. We had tea. .. Mama had headache. We went to church for vsenoschnaya.  In the evening Papa met Prokopy personally. We worked. 12C.

In Olga's diaries of 1913 , she often wrote abour Voronov like this:
" Tak gadko bez moego S., uzhasno" It is so disgusting without my S, awful mood.
"Bez nego pusto"  -  I feel myself empty without him
"S. ne videla i Grustno" I did not see S. I feel sad.
" Moy mily, dorogoy, zolotoy" My tutsi, darling, gold one.
"Uzasno rada videty ego" I am glad terrifique to see him
" Do obeda na palube sidela i nakonets moyo lyubimoe solnyshko prishlo" - I was sitting at the deck till evening meal and finally , my beloved sunshine have come.
"Slishkom mne bylo veselo, strashno Veselo S. videty"
It was so funny, terribly funny to see S.
"Moyo S. nekhorosho sebya chuvstvuet, bednoe zolotse. Spasi ego, gospodi",-  My S. is not feel good. Poor Goldie. God, please, save him.

January of 1914
" Prishla na 5 minut t. Ella.. U neyo byli gr. Kleinmikhel, Olga and S., no ne moe! Skuchno i suetno"
"Aunt Ella came for 5 minutes.  She said that Countess Kleinmikhely, Olga and S, but not mine, came to her place!  How everything is boring and fussy!"

" Uze na serdtse ne khorosho, bolit, plokho sebya chuvstvuet i spala tolyko 1 1/2 chasa"
" My heart feels not so good as before, I fell pain in my heart, my heart is not healthy. I slept only 1 hour and a half"

" At 2 o'clock S. arrived. Mama and Sandro blessed him.

" Utrom Alli sidela (i.e. Alli Pistolykors). Poshli s rebyatami v igralynuyu i Alexeem pili chay. Tam solntse i khorosho. Fedosiya Stepanovna prinosila 2-kh nedelynuyu devochku Aninoy korovnitsy. t - 36.4 -37.0
37,1/2-

" In the morning  Alli was sitting . We went with guys to the playroom and had tea with Alexey. It was sun and it was very good there. Fedosiya Stepanovna brought 2 -week girl of Anya's  cowlady. t 36.4 -37.0 37 1/2"
