Summary

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

The information in some of the documents about the Ankara and Yozgat Deportations appear with bits of commentary written among them.

Armenians who are located within the provincial district who may be actual or probably committee members, especially teachers, doctors, pharmacists, priests, store owners, lawyers and those whose presence is deemed dangerous and destructive from the perspective of the peace and order of the country, must be sent away to be deported to Zor. During the deportation attention must be given to protect their properties and physical integrity and honor.

Since it was deemed necessary to have Hamparsum, a member of the Yozgat appellete court and Bogos and Mihran Efendi, members of the lower Court deported, whatever is needed must be done to further that.

The properties and lives of deported Armenians must be protected and effort must be expended to ensure that there is no cause for complaint.

On whether the rank and file Armenians serving in labor battalions needed to be deported as well.

Note about the Secretary Sadık Vicdani of Ankara.

Despite the fact that a statement was sent to civil servants in which documentation and a summary of assaults against people and the armed state forces by Armenians, along with, insurrection and rebellion after the mobilization was presented, there have bee no acts in the region by the Armenians who currently live there, against either others or armed state forces.

The sentence that was meted out to the Kayseri delegate Husrof Efendi was viewed as too light; the decision and ruling must be in accordance with the orders from the Chief Commander's office dated 28 June 1915 [15 Haziran 1915], and numbered 2395.
