Manisa, 5 (18) June 1914
This morning, in the village Mütevelli, near Manisa, an Ottoman Greek was found slain by a long knife and shot by a Martini rifle. The previous night, after having been robbed by police officers, a peaceful Ottoman Greek was deadly wounded.
Ottoman refugees are wreaking havoc unimpeded throughout the countryside, and so no Rum dares go to their fields to work, despite the assurances offered by the Authorities. If there were no ban on Ottoman Greeks leaving, all would leave, fearing future massacres.
