Accounts and Papers: 1903
An 1903 document with excellent and detailed information on the affairs in Macedonia. Read the section Turkey: Affairs in Southeast Europe (State Papers of the House of Commons in London). Hundreds of pages of awesome information.

Pages 95 to 518 in the PDF document are all correspondences about the affairs in Macedonia. An enormous amount of information, mostly in English, some in French. Very detailed, very valuable. Download the pdf. It demonstrates the correspondences between Brittish and Macedonians and other peoples regarding the Macedonian situation during the early 1900s, and it reveals details most people do not have access to.

For example, one passage:

"The Colonel [Mehmed Pasha] and the Captain of the Gendarmerie subordinate to him are both habitual drunkards, and are becoming a nuisance to the town [Skopje]. The Colonel's private house is full of white-capped Albanians, who form a kind of bodyguard to their master, and are ready to perpetrate any outrage at his bidding. Peaceable citizens are beaten by the gendarmes if discovered on the streets at night -- even on a moonlight night -- without a lantern."

From Vice Consul Fontana to Consul-General Sir A. Bilotti, June 20, 1901

Another passage:

"Wife of Hadji Blagoff, of Dobrinishta, 37 or 38. Police came middle of Friday night 9th (10th) November; soldiers in the yard; two policemen took her upstairs and beat her; one violated her -- not Eyoub, probably Rouni...At first house they asked daughter where her father was; absent; beat her and 100-year old grandmother. Witness tried to escape; begchi, Ibrahim Solu Jaleff, stopped her; souwarri tried to violate her in a stable; begchi prevented him."
