The Chargé in Bulgaria ( Wilson ) to the Acting Secretary of State

33 [3?]. Reports have reached me from French, English, Greek and American Red Cross sources that Bulgarian officials are rendering repatriation of Greeks as difficult as possible and subject them to great and unnecessary hardships making them pay railroad fare and other expenses. Another report less well confirmed as coming only from Greek sources is that Bulgarians in emigrating eastern Macedonia are taking with them all horses, cattle, flocks, et cetera, which is in distinct violation of terms of armistice. French commander in chief whom I saw in Salonica and who is expected here shortly told me that he intends to speak energetically to the Bulgarian Government regarding these two points. Above repeated to Paris.
