Probably to Princess Marie Bariatinskiy, one of the Tsarina's few friends during her early years in Russia: "Dearest Princess, Please kindly read this through & tell me if you think I can take my Cousin to-night to the theatre. If you can bring it back at 11 I shall be home & glad to see you [...]".

Slight traces of former mounting on verso. Written on both sides of her attractive printed stationery featuring her name in Russian beneath an embossed crown printed in blue. According to documentary sources, much of Alexandra Feodorovna's personal correspondence was destroyed, and only rarely do any of her unpublished letters come to light (we are obliged to Elizabeth Jane Timms for additional information).
