Jan. 10, 1901

One of the wounded, nigs, who was shot through Both lungs died this morning and the others, Leg was amputated below the knee.

Are to go to Bato where we hear Bustos is to stay  tonight.  Surrounded Bato and at a signal (3 shots) we were to advance on all sides and catch the Ins. In a dragnet. all went well until the signal was given when the Ins. opened up on us from the mts. in our rear.  We were never so surprised in our lives for instead of staying in town the foxy devils camped out on the mt. side.  We turned and drove them up the mts. but don’t know if they suffered any loss or not.  Returned to Virac.
