We had a light shower during the night but during the day it was clear. Our outpost came in at 8:00 a.m. and reported everything quiet. Also heard the news that Aguinaldo, with half his men, has left Malolos and has taken quarters at Cavite or in that neighborhood. The rest of them chose a new leader and are willing to fight our forces. All remain on the sick list except myself (good for duty). Fresh Meat.
