[To OTAA, who are still in Tobolsk: ]We miss our quiet peaceful life in Tobolsk. Here practically every day brings unpleasant surprises. Members of the regional soviet have just been and asked how much money each of us has with them. We had to sign a paper. Since, as you know, Papa and Mama haven't a kopeck, they wrote down 'nothing,' while I had 16 roubles and 17 kopecks, which Anastasia gave me for the journey. They took everyone else's money into safekeeping with the committee, leaving them only a very little - they gave them receipts. They have warned us we are not immune from further searches. Who could believe they would treat us this way after 14 months of detention. We hope things are better with you, as they were when we were there.

I love this one from Nicky:

''What better symbol of the grand duchesses could there be then flowers?
For they are, in truth, like beautiful flowers.''

I had it in my signature for awhile.

Dear Papa

Today there is a strong rain and we are sitting at
home. Maria went to sleep in the afternoon, and
Anastasia crept under the mattress and slept there
with Maria on top of her.

When she got up we all laughed, and so did she. We are
all waiting for you to return here. Is the weather
good where you are?

I have not seen Mama and our brother, I hope I will
see them this evening before bath time. I send you a
big kiss dear papa.

Olga

Nov. 19, 1914, p.52.
"...It's 2 p.m. now. Mother is lying on the couch and writing a letter to you and Anastasia is writing to Aunt Olga... I always sit in your arm-chair at tea- time... Aleksey is resting upstairs after breakfast... I am happy that we'll have no lessons on Friday because of the holiday. It's such fun..."

I like this one from Maria's letter thats how I feel today no lessons on friday so boring. I was so frustrated and angry with someone.

Another Alexandra's written phrase for Nicholas:
"I am yours. You are mine and of this there is no doubt. You are imprisoned in my heart and the key has got lost, and now you must remain there forever."

[Mama was frequently ill as she got older, which saddened me to no end. Alexei's illness took quite a bit out of her, especially after the Spala incident in 1912... ] My dear darling Mama,You don't know how sorry I am that you feel bad. It is so awful to see how you suffer. You are [so] patient that I cannot understand. Anastasia kiss you and is sad that you can't come down, and wishes you good night. God bless you. Maria

so sad :(

This is from Anastasia: The Last Grand Duchess, Russia, 1914 (it's not a real Anna diary, but I like this passage):

"9/22 March 1914

Father Grigory came to give us a special blessing and to wish us a safe journey.  Mama brightens up when he's here, because he reassures her that all will be well.

He stayed for dinner with us.  His table manners are appalling.  If I ever behaved so, Mama would certainly scold me.  But because he is a man of God, he is forgiven his manners -- scratching himself, even picking his nose!  I know I ought not to have done it, but when I saw him, I began to pick mine, too.  Mama didn't notice, but Tatiana shot me a murderous look, and Mashka kicked me under the table.  No one shot a murderous look at Father Grigory and I'll be nobody kicked him, either."

Heh heh, poor Anna got stung by The Serious Tatiana Look!
