„… Македонците се сметаат себе си за целосно одвоен национален елемент.. ..Македонија мора да има припадне на Македонците …“

It is a grievous error to suppose that we seek to acquire
Macedonia on behalf of Bulgaria. We Macedonians consider
ourselves to be an entirely separate national element, and we are
not in the least disposed to allow our country to be seized by
Bulgaria, Servia, or Greece. We will, in fact, oppose any such
incorporation with all our might. Macedonia must belong to the
Macedonians.
