25th March 1878 – Leeds Mercury’s Article about Macedonia

By Christos P.

The Leeds Mercury was a newspaper in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was published from 1718 to 1755 and again from 1767. Initially it consisted of 12 pages and cost three halfpennies. In 1794 it had a circulation of about 3,000 copies, and in 1797 the cost rose to sixpence because of increased stamp duty. It appeared weekly until 1855, then three times a week until 1861 when stamp duty was abolished and it became a daily paper costing one penny.

The paper of the 25th March 1878 contains a quite interesting article about Macedonia. Of course among the ethnicities found on Macedonia, again there is not any so-called “ethnic Macedonian”
