  • At one bridge my Turkish guide said: "We had captured 1,600 maidens, all of them beautiful. We were taking them to be sold in the cities or to be given as gifts to our officers. When those girls reached the middle of the bridge crossing this wild stream, one maiden threw up her arm as a signal and the entire 1,600 dashed themselves into the roaring torrent."
