Wilhelm's plea for former Tsar!

December 18, 1917

Kaiser Wilhelm II has asked Russian armistice delegates "to ascertain the probable fate of former Emperor Nicholas II and his family, according to a Chicago Daily Tribune dispatch.

The commissioners have asked members of the former imperial family "as to their desires," and they replied "that they would like to go abroad."

The commissioners have agreed "in principle to the wishes of Nicholas and his family" but the matter cannot be settled until presented to the constituent assembly.
