Diary of Alfred Burton Welch

Sunday 2-26-99

This is our regular “fightin’ day.” but aside from pot hunters were not molested. They were very aggravating & shot all day persistently, often in volleys. Moonlight is very bri’t & they have the advantage in having woods for shelter. Hard to locate them, but if a flash is seen Mr. S[harp].S[hooter]. stands a poor show. Big fire off towards inland hills where the ins. have vacated a town & burnt it.
