With the Serbs in Macedonia - Douglas Walshe - 1920

The terrible Turk is far and away the most interesting figure in Macedonia to our eyes. Here, at any rate, the leopard seems to have changed his spots, or else he really is the Serb converted to Islam, which the Serbians claims him to be. He is picturesque and peaceable, he works hard in his fields, and in a large number of cases speaks "Macedonski," which the Serbs call Serbian and the Bulgars Bulgarian, and know no Turkish, and very little Greek.
