For long years past the Macedonians have strived for an
independent Macedonia, but this was made impossible by the
policies of the great powers interested. They were, however, on
the verge of achieving this ideal after the First Balkan War, when
the interference of Austria in Albania caused Serbia and Greece
to demand a revision of the treaty which had provided for
Macedonian freedom. Against this demand the Macedonians

Ferdinand, naturally, desires Macedonia as an extension of his
own territory, although the Macedonians are very little in
sympathy with his Greater Bulgaria imperialism and would only
accept it as an alternative between freedom on the one hand and
subjection to Greece and Serbia on the other.
