Kent had already sent Hawkins' bri
gado forward, and shortly after' Grimes'
battery opened, which was boforo 8
o'clock, he rodo on and camo up with
Haw kins and his lending regiment, tho
Sixtli infantry. At that point ho wus
ordered to giro the cavolry tho right of
way, which caused a delay of his ad
vance -10 minutes. Daring that delay
Hawkins mid Kent wont to tho front
undor tbo tiro of sharpshooters and
crossed tho main ford of San Juan riv
er, already reached by tho advanco
guard of tbo cavalry division, tho Ninth
regiment. They looked through tho
fringo of trees and saw tbo enemy's po
sition. Hawkins thought ho could turn
tho enemy's right nt San Jnau, but
Kent did not agrco with him and de
cided to put two brigades into column
for direct attack. Going backward to
hurry his troops, ho met thorn just as
they camo under a heavy flro not only
from tho front, but from tho dcuso

Tho balloon was abreast of tho head
of his division, and shrapnel aimed at
it foil among his men. Tho observers iu
tbo balloon pointed out to Knit n trail
parallel with tlio road on its left. Tho
Sixtli and Sixteenth regiments were al
ready in tho road, past tho forks of tbo
trail, and Kent went buck and directed
tho Eovcuty-first regiment into tlio trail,
to Lo followtd by WikolT's bligudc, iu
support of Hawkins. Tho Sevcuty-iirst
becamo a stumbling block in tho way of
Wikoff's udvanro, and it whs noon
when tho head of Wikoil's brlgado
reached tin) fording plaie.
When tho Sixth nginitnt readied
tho ford, Hawkins was theru nud said
to Colonol Egbert, its commander,
"Somewhat beyond hero you enn got
an enfllado flro on thoso works, aud
Lieutenant Ord will show you whoro
to go In." Tlij works ou m Juau
heights wcro within viow. Marching to
tho front tho Sixth formed on the left
of tho Sixth caMilry behind tho fringo
of trcts, directly opposite Sun Juan
blockbouto. Colonel Egbert looked over
tho grouud lu his front, and, finding
that tho cavalry pickets wero being flrcd
upou by Spaniards iu tbo houses in
front, sent out four companion us fkir-nileherstoro-cnforcu
thu troopers. Thoso
compaulos drew n heavy flro from tho
Spanish front. This halt wns uiado bo
tween tho Agnndores and San Juau.
Seeing n battalion of-tho Sixteenth

ordered his regiment forward in lino of

colonel pluuged into tho stream, which
was waist deep, erected, und beyond tho
high bank found a road parallel to tbo
river aud iuoloeed by burbed wiro fences.
At a plgnal from tho oolouel tbo rest of

Captain Whitall, with part of tho Six
