Letter - 22 February 1919

Type: Letter

From: J. H. House to J. L. Barton

Regarding: American missionaries in Thessaloniki J. H. House, Mr. Clarke and Mr. Cooper were arrested by Greek General in command of the Allies in that time, being accused that they were engaged in a Bulgarian propaganda and of harboring spies. J. H. House declared that teaching of Bulgarian had been removed from the American Farm School’s program long ago. Bulgarian language was used in religious services because they had many Macedonian Bulgarian servants and workers who were Protestants.
