A Te Deum was "sung in the chapel of the Russian Embassy" in Berlin to give thanks for the birth of Grand Duchess Olga, the first child of Emperor Nicholas II and his wife, Alexandra, reports the New York Times.  Embassy officials and "members of the Russian colony in Berlin" were present for the service.
