Jan. 27th, 1900

Saturday–This week has passed without much of interest happening. It rained Tuesday: Thursday a detachment of the boys went out for a hike & “scrap-hunting” but came back without the scrap. (I was on guard so didn’t go). Word was telegraphed down here from Bacolor that they e[x]pected a scrap any moment and a detachment of us are ready to go at any moment now (about 1 P .M.)
