We had a nice shower during the night but the sky is clear and the sun is out as hot as ever. I sent one letter and some papers, but the Zealandia didn’t leave for some reason. We have news from Iliolo, everything quiet but our troops remain on the transports as we go through regular drills: company drills in the morning, battalion and regimental drills in the evening. This day the delegates for the insurgent government elected Aguinaldo as their President and General Commander of the Army which was celebrated in the evening at the Capitol Malolos where he took the oath of office and delivered his address which was published and I sent home. The same men remain on the sick list.
