I have slept in the captain’s quarters all night but didn’t sleep much. Firing was done near Malate but our men were not engaged. As usual I took meat out to the front and stayed until evening. The day was rather quiet with the exception of our battery which cleared the woods in front of our regiment once in a while, but on our right the troops are advancing and we now have a straight line which reaches clear around to Cavite.
