2. "The 1,000 American houses are being emptied of furniture by the police one after the other. The furniture, bedding and everything of value is being stored in large buildings about the city....The goods are piled in without any attempt at labeling or systematic storage. A crowd of Turkish women and children follow the police about like a lot of vultures and seize anything they can lay their hands on and when the more valuable things are carried out of the house by the police they rush in and take the balance....I suppose it will take several weeks to empty all the houses and then the Armenian shops and stores will be cleared out."
