May 2, 1899

Mail came today. Received one letter from home & one from Mary S. & Cleona. Most of the boys received a large mail. Am still trying to get Watsons (sic) discharge. He May leave on next steamer. Commissioners from Aggies [Aguinaldo’s] army came in again yesterday and rumor has it that terms of surrender are at last completed and insurrection will be off in a few days. Telegram from McKinley came a few days ago say volunteers must not be kept here unless they so wished and to send them home in order of their arrival.
