Oct. 5, 1899

It has ceased raining, and today we managed to get up the river about 5 miles and drive out a gang of rebels that were in an old sugar mill. Had quite an engagement for a few minutes. The river gunboats “Florida” and Oeste did some great bombarding with their one-inch and rapid fire guns. One man of “F” Co. was slightly wounded in the arm.
