Celebration for the Grand Duchess's birth

November 17, 1895

A Te Deum was sung in the chapel of the Russian Embassy in Berlin today "in thanksgiving" for the birth of Grand Duchess Olga of Russia, the first child of Emperor Nicholas II and his wife, Alexandra, reports the New York Times.

Embassy staff and "members of the Russian colony" in Berlin were the only guests.

Grand Duchess Olga was born two days ago at St. Petersburg.
