Yurovsky:
[the execution of the Tsar and his family has been ordered in 1918]
I've kept their mail. I didn't know whether they ought to have it. Shall I give it to them now? Would it be cruel or kind? I don't know how to judge these things. I don't think anyone knows.

Transcript:
I kept their mail.
I didn't know whether
they ought to have it.
Shall I give it to them now?

the Nevsky Prospect.
Old fool, all dressed up

Nobody seems to mind."
Listen to Grandmama:
"Remember to dress for dinner.
It keeps up one's dignity
and impresses the people."
