24 October: ". . . [A] great disaster has come over my country, resulting in the expulsion of a million Christians from Asia Minor and Thrace, who are now threatened with starvation and death under the very eyes of Europe too worn-out by the convulsions of the last ten years to cast more than an apathetic glance on the appalling sufferings caused by the mistakes of its diplomatists. . . ."
