Ergingan Oct. 21.
The massacre and plundering that took place I cannot write in full. The number killed in the city and en-virons is more than 2,000 All the Armenian shops have been plundered and left empty. The Armenians left alive are all reduced to beggary. We escaped by our friendly relations with high Turks, but the goods taken from my shop are more than 500£ in value.
