Diary of Santiago Barcelona

February 1st, 1900 (Thursday)

Yesterday Turdes Bonlad was sent as a scout to check on the presence of the Americans. He sent us word during the night that the Americans had matched (forty-five of them towards Reina Mercedes, and the rest towards Echague) at 8 in the morning.

In view of this information, we returned to our camarin, where we had our breakfast.
