The night was quiet. Captain [Daniel] Bierer, having very sore legs, went to Manila for a few day. The day was spent very quietly. In the afternoon we received mail from the U.S. I received one letter from G and his Kater and a receipt. At night, about 12 o'clock, the enemy attacked our outpost. The rest of the company reinforced them and in a few hours repulsed the enemy. The Third Artillery lost several killed and some wounded but the enemy lost over 300 killed and that many wounded.
