The respective commanders of Imus, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco de Malabon, Ricarte, Riego de Dios, and Mariano Trias, continue firm in their defense of Spain. Only in Bacoor are there sufficient men ready to swear for Aguinaldo. Frs. Clos and Algue have spoken to two of them, urging them to desist from their evil intention, and to surrender to the government 200 or 300 riﬂes they took from the arsenal when our troops abandoned it and which they keep hiding. In the end they promised to do so.
