The Consul General at Sofia ( Murphy ) to the Secretary of State
[Received December 5—12:05 p.m.]
193. Situation changed for worse. Bulgarian civil administration in Dobroudja which it was promised should continue now ordered leave. Roumanian troops are to occupy territory and Theodoroff Cabinet may resign as protest. Country much disquieted. Bulgarian population Dobroudja fearing renewal cruel treatment will probably flock en masse to Bulgaria. Neither food nor fuel to supply them. Bulgaria asks only that English and French troops occupy Dobroudja and that neither Roumanian military nor civil authorities be permitted there pending settlement by Peace Conference.
