"Residence in Bulgaria", St. Clair and Brophy


A miller at Devna, a Rayah claiming Greek protection, employed a Bulgarian servant: one day the master used very harsh language to the man, who thereupon said that he would not remain to be abused in that manner, and that he should seek another service; the miller said in that case he should not pay him his wages; these the Bulgarian preferred to sacrifice rather than to stay in his place, and went to work in another mill. The miller went to the Greek Consulate, related the affair, and further accused his late servant of having threatened to kill him, an allegation of which he could bring no proofs whatever; however, the servant was arrested, and is now in prison in Varna.
