Large fires could be seen burning every place, most of them shacks. Firing was kept up pretty steady to the right of the line where the Montana and Nebraska Regiments lay. Dewey’s and the Utah Batteries’ cannons did a good deal of night but there wasn’t much firing done through the day. The sharpshooters are as thick as ever in the woods but we don\’t pay much attention to them. Very few are getting hit. Our rations are issued regularly, fresh bread and meat almost every day. It always keeps our two wagons busy to haul all the staff; besides, we keep seven carabaos and carts there with Chinese drivers. Also, these stay at the front. The field hospital is established in the church. In the city everything is very quiet but a few shots are heard here and there every once in a while from the guards and some good arrests are made daily. The sick and wounded are doing fine.
