Excerpt from The Case of Armenia
The Sultan, following his admission into the fraternity of the civilized nations, resumed with even a fuller vigor his congenial trade of murder and destruction. He massacred Maronites and Nestorians, through the Druses; 30, 000 Bulgarians, th... rough his soldiers; laid a heavy hand on Bosnia and Herzegovina; plundered and massacred, through the Kurds, the Circassians and his Zaptiehs, the defenseless and peaceful Armenians of the rural districts; and through his chosen officials and military tyrants, inaugurated, in the principal Armenian centres, an era of unprecedented oppression and persecution. The russo-turkish war of 1877 was the direct outcome of this state of things.
