We rested all day but sent out our guards as usual. Everything is very quiet around Cavite. The gunboats are still bombarding in the evening. [Companies] A, B and C received orders to march to Cavite, San Fernando, a distance of about 10 miles. We got there safely. We stayed there all day but had no engagements. As soon as they saw us coming they retreated. A good many escaped in boats up the river. We captured over 100 rebels and sent them [to Cavite.]*
