FROM: Vice-Consul Yiannès, Vurla

TO: Greek MFA, Athens

AFFECTED AREAS: Entire province of Vurla (Urla)

Vurla, 9 (22) June 1914

Regarding my telegram concerning the massacres, I hereby declare that the evening before yesterday the local Authorities received an urgent telegram…… immediately, in all Turkish villages, by which even the minutest act of violent was strictly forbidden from the night before yesterday onwards.
I am assuming this comes as a consequence of the protests made by the Russian Consul and the Metropolitans, to the Minister of Internal Affairs, initiated by yours truly the day before yesterday.
