This is a beautiful day and quite comfortable. Business in the city is booming everywhere. The Senator and Valencia both arrived with troops and none are expected. The insurgent leaders are recruiting the natives. Everywhere there is a good deal of robbery all over the city among the natives and Spaniards. A good many arrests are made every day but there is perfect order everywhere. In the evening we had regimental dress parade which is the first one for some time. It was very satisfactory. Wilson, [Walter] Collins, [Frank] Sullivan, Johnson, [Louis] Coyner, [Frank] Hustead, [Jesse] Murphy and [James] Woodward are on the sick list.
