This has been a beautiful day. The company is going through our regular routine of duty. We have seven men on guard and fifteen on outpost. Our outpost reports everything quiet on the line but the mud is getting knee deep on account of the hard rains. Rumors are afloat that our men at Iloilo captured a German gunboat while attempting to land some Gatling guns and ammunition for the insurgents. Everything remains quiet. The same nine men stay on the sick list.
