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
