Lord Strangford did not live to see how I followed his advice. Four years after my return to Philippopolis, the Bulgarian in surrection of 1876 broke out. And I did my best to enlighten those who brought about or took part in Mr. Earing's inquiry into the Bulgarian Atrocities, made famous by Mr. W. E. Gladstone's pamphlet. On the eve of the russo-turkish war of 1877, I wrote in The Times a series of seven letters, in which I voiced the sufferings and hopes of my people and for which I was imprisoned by the Turks and sentenced to death. In 1879, after the Treaty of Berlin, again in 1885, after the Union between Bulgaria and East Roumelia, I was sent to England to plead the cause of my country. And after Speaking up stoutly for Bulgaria in different capacities, I was appointed in 1911 to the post of its Prime Minister. And it fell to my lot to inaugurate that Balkan Alliance which was to solve the Balkan problem. Events having given in 1913 a wrong solution to that problem, I trust the English public will not find fault with me if, in the present crisis of the Near East, I venture to raise again my voice and tell the truth in a matter of supreme moment to my people, more sinned against than sinning, and to the Balkan Peninsula, more distracted than ever.
