Diary of Gregorio del Pilar

January 11-13, 1897

We went to Angat because we received word that the town would be attacked, but such did not happen. There we found reinforcements of 200 men coming from Santa Maria. Later, we went to Layang-Layang, which was totally burned by the Spaniards. At dawn the next day, we proceeded to Bustos, where we captured Captain Jugo’s volunteers. On the 12th we were at the surrounding areas of Real Paliguid taking from there abandoned rifles, which we planned to bring to Imus. We slept under the big mango tree, the night dew serving as sleeping mat and blanket.
