It has rained all night and the morning is nice and refreshing. Many battles have been fought near Malolos. Five of us had a pass to Manila. I spent most of the train ride with my German friend and returned to the boat at 4:00 p.m. Before we went on, the train arrived from Malolos with six men killed and 48 wounded and also many rebel wounded. All were put aboard the hospital ship and taken to the First Reserve Hospital. On Monday the same troops lost eight men who were killed, several drowned and 40 wounded.
