A vote to send Nicholas to Kronstadt

June 7, 1917

Reuters has received a dispatch from Petrograd stating that "a meeting of the workmen;s section of the workmen's and soldiers' delegates and the Leninists," a vote was taken and passed in favor of sending former Emperor Nicholas II and his family to Kronstadt.''

The dispatch further stated "in consequence of the hilarity caused by alternative proposals by the Leninists, such as the imperial prisoners be sent to work in the Siberian gold mine, some groups refrained from voting."
