In page 211 he is in Skopje and writes about the population: ‘sa population est eminemment Bulgare,mais il y a aussi assez de Serbes et de Zinzares’ (Tr: its population is eminently Bulgarian, but there are also enough Serbs and Zinzares(Vlachs).
With the formation of the second Bulgarian Empire in 1186, the rule of the Tsars once more made itself felt in Macedonia. As early as 1197 a Bulgarian noble declared himself independent in the passes of the Vardar, and governed Upper Macedonia in his own name. We find the Tsar Kalojan lord of Uskub in 1210.
Slaveikoff, by his journal, published at Constantinople in the sixties, had endeavoured to prepare the way for the national movement in Macedonia ; but so little was the Bulgarian alphabet then known, even among the Bulgarian Macedonians, that the editor was forced to print his patriotic articles in Greek characters.
Bcrats were granted in 1890 for two Bulgarian Bishops at Ochrida and Uskub respectively.
While later the author informs us “In the district of Uskub, where there are some Servian-speaking refugees and people speaking a Bulgarian dialect containing many Servian words“.
