There is no evidence whatsoever of a rebellion occurring in the county of Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan]. Practically all of the Armenian villages that are part of the county have been cleared out by the County Executive and the Township Directors. The children of Armenian families can't even venture out in front of their homes much less go about in the villages where they live. As a result of these upsetting circumstances, the Armenian villages have been very badly looted by the Gendarmerie, the Circassian officers and the Muslim population. The army unit Commander's Office reported that the state coffers will be very negatively affected by this situation.

It is clear from the telegram from the Branch Presidential Office, that up until now 3,660 Armenians of those found in the villages and town of Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan] were killed at the direction of the Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan] County Executive.
