While everything is at Cavite. Much fighting is done across the bay. All along the line we can hear them from morning until night. Good many are visiting Manila for the last time. The Nebraskans went aboard the Hancock today. The Senator is also coming to put provisions aboard. We received a small mail. Also, the boys are celebrating to a finish, a few of them landed in the guard house.
