August 13, 1891
Grand Duke Alexis of Russia has left Paris for Vichy. Newspapers had published his departure time, which meant that crowds were outside his hotel to see the grand duke get into his carriage and drive off. Crowds "cheered him enthusiastically," and Alexis responded with a bow. There were shouts of "Vive le Russe et la France" and "Vive le Czar!"
Grand Duke Alexis arrived in Vichy later in the afternoon.
