April 7th-99

Lots o’ filips at the large umbrella tree 2½ mi. S.W. We can see them send out their scouting parties. They moved up within 300 yds of our cossacks and a few shots kept us awake and anxious for morning. Natives advanced early under a man on a black and their line is not somewhere close under cover of bamboos. We expect the ball to open any moment. Five sharp.
