Hello M. Last week things started to happen in Berlin. Apparently somebody found a dead woman under Schloss Brucke. I heard that the woman found was identified as frau Stephanie Helstein. I met frau Helstein several times, and I found her very charming but rather nervous and a bit depressed from time to time. I was very shocked when I heard about her murder on the wireless. Frau Yardley told me yesterday that the polizei actually were getting close to an arrest of some sort.
The very same day but a bit later I found a woman who had passed out by the Spree along Fischerstrasse. She was wet and cold and very confused. She had lost her memory and I helped her home to our house and gave her something hot to drink and the opportunity to get her clothes dry. She claimed that her father was Nikolaj Romanov! Like the late Russian tsar! I mentioned the names of the tsar's children and she reacted when I mentioned the name "Anastasia". All very weird! They were all murdered eleven years ago, surely! Gustov came home and talked to her and tried to help her remember, and he told me later that she did have a Moscow accent and not a St Petersburg accent which the young Anastasia Romanova probably had. Titania, who's a doctor, also came over and had a look at her, but could notice that the young woman was not physically hurt. I had to leave shortly thereafter, but shortly after my departure, the young woman left as well ... and she has not returned as far as i know. All very weird! Anyway, love you XXX Rosie
