We have fair weather right along. The company is going through our regular routine of duty. Seven men are on guard and ten men on outpost. Everything passed off rather quietly this day but the Germans, according to the “Amerikan” are in sympathy with the insurgents and it is claimed they are furnishing arms, ammunition and money to them. This of course raises more excitement. The paper claiming it to be true but the Germans seem to be ignorant of it. Homer Daugherty is now in the hospital receiving treatment for a bad rupture. Only five men are on the sick list. Lieutenant Charles Howard has been sick for several days with malaria. The rest of our men are in the best of health.
