Diary of Alfred Burton Welch

March 27-99

We sent about 500 ducks down in canoes to Manila –for mess fund. Quiet last night but firing at Pasig this morn. Don’t savey [savvy] why we are not attacked as we are not over 100 men and are fearfully exposed. Wn is all along this end of lake & the rest of brigade is at Malahon [Malabon], which will probably fall today.
