-Macedonian Provisional Government (1881.03.23)

Our dear Macedonia, our dear homeland is calling: You, who
are my faithful children; you, who like Aristotle and Alexander
the Great, are my heirs; you, in whose veins Macedonian blood
flows, do not leave me to die, help me. What a sad sight, real
Macedonians, it would be if you were to witness my burial.
