The fact that Macedonians ran Bulgaria's government for a while also gives more reason as to why Macedonians wouldn't be criticizing Bulgaria as much as they would Serbia and Greece.
Yeah I'm inclined to agree. Does always bother me reading these old documents and not seeing any criticism aimed towards Bulgaria or Albania but I suppose it's all relevant to the time. Still though, Bulgaria decimated villages in Macedonia during the First World War, not sure how aware of this people in Switzerland and the US were.
