May 17th 1899

We pressed rapidly onward in the hopes of reaching San Isidro in time to rescue about 20 Americans among them is Lieut. [J. C.] Gilmore off the “Yorktown”, but we were too late for the insurgents had moved them and barely stopped long enough to fight. This (San Isidro) has been the Capitol since Malolos fell, I wonder where they moved it to this time, We are about 100 miles from Manila now.
