This is a lovely morning but before dinner the rain began to pour. The natives tell us that it will rain steadily this way for five or six weeks. We are seeing the native soldiers every day and everywhere and do not think very much of them for they act more like boys than men. We also receive news of the downfall of Santiago. We are sending mail today for the first time. We had some nice mutton for breakfast, dinner and supper. They claim that Dewey captured these. No sick.
