has been a lot of news with regards to Rasputin in recent weeks. An article
by Doctor Thomas Stuttaford in The
London Times on Thursday March 9th suggested that the reason Rasputin
did not die from eating the poisoned food given to him was 'possibly because
of his legendary drinking, which can reduce the acidity of gastric juices,
so that the cyanide is not rendered volatile'.I
will try to get the whole article on-line but the OCR software that came
with my scanner [HP scanjet 4100C] is pretty pathetic, so if you you know
where I can get some please e-mail
a newly found book bought at auction by a Russian cellist suggests otherwise.
It is a file on Rasputin put together by his opponents from his personnel
files and testemonies of his 'groupies' [for want of a better word] suggest
that the cyanide used in the attemted murder was diluted to a non fatal
dose by one of the opponents who had a sexual emphatuation with him. This
fascinating document also gives credence to the theory that Rasputin had
a sexual relationship with the Czarina as in letters to him she constantly
calls him 'darling'.
got an e-mail recently saying Rasputin had made certain predictions concerning
events that will happen in the next few years. I have not heard of any of
these so if anyone has any info of these alleged forcasts please e-mail.
