Dec. 2nd 1899

Things have gone just as usual for the past few days- guard & drill-. Thursday night a arrested a cart load of rice & took it to headquarters. Yesterday I reported again with a driver who had taken an Insurrecto Lieut. and a senorita claimed to be Aguinaldos’ wife, through the lines in his cart. Today a detail of 20 men from K, 20 from B, all of M and troops from all around here started out on a hike for an indefinite time. Corp.McCabster, the Taylor Bros and myself are to go in the morning with Lieut Col Strother & a government wagon to overtake them.
