The weather is lovely and we go through our regular routine of drills and have eight men on guard and eleven on outpost. The Zealandia raises anchor at noon. Everything is pretty quiet everywhere. The American is out again apologizes for statements it had made frankly calling their informants “liars.” Another transport with 800 Spanish soldiers leaves today. The sick list remains the same.
