Nothing of interest has occurred. Rebels are thoroughly on run all through Southern provinces. Nights this entire month quite cold, one blanket hardly sufficient. Days fine. Sick report just beginning to diminish. Hope in another month the Regt. will again be fit for work. Go to Manila once or twice a week & meet many old friends. Cockfights in Pasay, good on Sundays. Very good picture of & article about me in Phila Press of Dec. 1st ’99.
