Summary

[This is a long document, so consult excel documentation for full summary]

News had reached the district governor's office of Kayseri that Armenian fugitives had attacked some of the villages connected to Erkilet and Muncusun and that an army unit had been deployed.

Upon hearing that acts of insurgency were taking place in the villages of Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan] and Akdagmadeni [Akdağmadeni] since yesterday, it was decided that a battalion from Yozgat be deployed. The "Martin" rifles may stay with the battalion for now.

The "Martin" rifles that were sent with the Yozgat battalion may stay with the battalion for now and the rebellion must be suppressed.

The "Martin" rifles that were sent with the Yozgat battalion may stay with the battalion for now. This information should be shared with those who need To know. It will be necessary to get reinforcements from the Corum [Çorum] Battalion.

The "Martin" rifles that were requested be sent To Ankara may remain until peace is restored.

Up To three hundred armed Armenians from the villages around Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan] attacked the Muslim villages located near Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan] which is part of the county of Maden. Upon hearing from the local County Executive and the branch president's office that another group of Armenians had attacked the Muslims villages of Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan], in order to suppress this movement before it damages the loyalty of the community, the entire Yozgat Gendarmerie Battalionun was deployed.

In order to suppress the insurrection in the vicinity of Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan] and Akdagmadeni [Akdağmadeni] before it damages the loyality of the community, the entire Yozgat Gendarmerie Battalion has been dispatched.

Maintaining the country's law and order and peace especially in areas that are not war zones, comes under the authority of the civil service. If there's a law that takes away that authority then it should be made known. Otherwise, the civil service in question needs to be supported.

It is clear that the communications about the incidents in Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan] and the surrounding area have been exaggerated; before something has been thoroughly investigated, conclusions and communications should not be rendered. Civil servants have no authority to be involved in issues like public order and security which is entirely the military's responsibility. Suspicious Armenians from the provincial districts of Yozgat and Corum [Çorum] should be deported through Kayseri and their properties and lives need to be protected.

About the lack of communication between the county executives, despite whatever shape the [army] divisions are in and if necessary, the need to bring the subject to a higher authority.
