AFFECTED AREAS: Entire coast of Asia Minor
Ayvalık, 21 June (4 July) 1914
I am reliably informed that, by means of coded telegram, the Sublime Porte has ordered the local administration to make sure that all evidence of havoc and looting shall be covered up, because of the imminent arrival of the Consular Interpreters’ Committee.
