THE ILINDEN UPRISING HEROESABOUT THEIR FATHERLAND AND NATIONALITY1. GEORGI (GOCE) NIKOLOV DELCHEV (1872–1903)
In a January, 1
st
1899 letter to Nikola Maleshevski, he writes:
 
„... Defections and split-ups should not scare you at all. It is regrettable, indeed, but what is to be doneif 
we are Bulgarians
and we all suffer from the same disease! If this disease were not inherent in our ancestors from whom we also inherited it, we would have never fallen under the ugly scepter of theTurkish sultans..."

Quotes from a memorandum which was handed to Dr. Kozhuharov, the Bulgarian consul in Bitola, andtransmitted by him to the government in Sofia with report N441, from September 17
th
, 1903, published by Christo Siljanov on p.435 of “Macedonia's Struggle for Liberation” (Sofia, 1933, edition of TheIlinden Uprising Veterans' Organization):"Considering the critical and terrible situation that the
Bulgarian population of the Bitola Vilayet
 found itself in and following the ravages and cruelties done by the Turkish troops and irregulars, ...considering the fact that
everything Bulgarian
runs the risk of perishing and disappearing without atrace because of violence, hunger, and the upcoming misery, the Head Quarters finds it to be itsobligation to draw the attention of the respected Bulgarian government to the pernicious consequencesvis-a-vis the Bulgarian nation, in case the latter does not fulfill its duty towards its brethren of racehere in an imposing fashion which is necessary by virtue of the present ordeal for 
the commonBulgarian Fatherland
...... Being in command of our people's movement, we appeal to you on behalf of 
the enslavedBulgarian
to help him in the most effective way - by waging war. We believe that the response of the people in free Bulgaria will be the same.... No Bulgarian school is opened, neither will it be opened ... Nobody thinks of education when he isoutlawed by the state because he bears the name
Bulgar
...Waiting for your patriotic intervention, we are pleased to inform you that we have in our disposition thearmed forces we have spared by now.
The Head Quarters of the Ilinden Uprising
