Diary of Chriss A. Bell

April 24, 1899

Went into action. House as inspection in place of Nicolly Walker who goes out as boat guard. The work will be an agreeable charge to doing nothing in quarters. Inspectors is a good place to learn & work in to the office. Took pictures up to photographer in evening. Met Miss Bowman & Earhart. Went down to train and helped carry wounded who came in from front. Nebraska’s still losing men. Agguis [Aguinaldo’s] policy seems to be to kill a few of our men each day & thus wear us out.
