Letter from Gotse Delchev to Nikola Maleshevski (1897)
22 April 1897
...Not only the news about the capture (if of course, true) are dismaying, but Doncho with his heroes is much more awful. Who knows if there is a people that has suffered more from its degenerates, than the Macedonian people!...
Гоце Делчев, Преписка (1972), 43 – 44
