Frank It. Poitcr of Troop A, 11th
Caalry, U. S. V., writes from Santu
Mesa hospital, Manila, under date of
January 8, to his friend John Noble,
Honolulu. The writer had been In hos
pital from sunstroke since Christians,
He gives nn account of cavalry routine
In camp before telling of the battle
wherein General Lawton fell.
"On tho evening of Dec. 18," lie
writes, "our troop was thrown Into
fever heat by the order from headquar
ters to prepare to 'hlkl' march that
night to San Mateo, which 1b situated
about twelve miles up rler from Camp
Aloa. Needless to say, tho street pre
sented a scene of great bustle, making
the preparations for the Journey. Soon
wo had our blankets rolled, our mess
kits In our saddle bags, our saddles,
bridles, etc., looked to, then na patient
ly as possible awaited the command to
"It was an exceedingly nasty night,
for the rain fell In torrents and the
mud was knee deep, but despite the ex
cessive blackness and disagreeable
weather we were all anxious to bo ofr.
At last the commands, 'Prepare to
mount,' 'Mount,' and an InBtant later
we are In our saddles, formed up In
lino side by side. Then with a 'Twos
right' we form u column of twos and
with the ca.i, 'Forward march," our
long string of horses and riders move
forward out of the canip Into the nar
row, black and miry road, on our way
to San Mateo and our fate as might be.
"We are soon joined by other troopa
composing our squadron, nnd shortly
reach the banks of the Mar Tucnlo riv
er, which, owing to heavy rnln for two
days, Is rushing by In a torrent, being
considerably Bwlfter and deeper than
usual. After a brief halt, wo urge our
horses Into the muddy stream and
arc soon wading and swimming, with
tho water up to tho horses' backs, our
legs submerged, to tho opposite tide,
which we reach after a hard but brief
struggle of ten minutes 1. c, it took
the troop Individually about that time,
but the squadron as a body was more
than an hour In crossing. I will men
tion hero that n squadron of cavalry
consists of four troops, with three
aquadrons to a regiment.
"As we gain the top of Incline lead
ing down to tho river wo halt to rest
tho animals and reform our column,
which being completed wo push for
ward once moro through pitchy black
ness, rain and tat' a toward San Mateo.
-JUUtv-consumlng tho greater part of
the night on tho march we artlve, tir
ed, just outside tho town. A halt Is
culled nnd no mako breakfast on hard
tack, can beef, etc., and await fiuthcr
"In tho morning wo, In company
with a battalion of the 27th Infantry
and ono of tho 29th, tako up positions
surrounding tho town, nnd soon tho
light was on which was tho death of
(encial Lawton, nlso of ono of my
most intlmato friends. Tho firing wail
hot and heavy for a while, but tho
enemy could not stand It long. Soon
the whole hordo of 'Agul's' sprlnteni
were hiking for dear life across tho
ilco paddles towaid tho mountains,
with tho 11th Cavalry boys In hot pur
suit. Scon not a nigger was to bo Bcn
and San Mateo was added to the list
of American captures. lint not with
out sid loss, thnt of Major General
Lawton, a bravo and competent com
mander, besides my dear friend, Joo
Kissinger, and others killed or wound
ed. "Thu net day our squadron mocd
back to Camp Aha and the setond
bquadron took our place for the tltc'e
being, going to Montalbau, tho moun
tain retreat of tho demoralized enemy,
but upon arriving discovered them
strongly entrenched and reenforced
So tho squadron fell back to San Ma
teo. On tho 22d, with several regi
ments of Infantry and two batteries of
artillery, they gavo tho nigs another
good thrashing, driving them out of
their entrenched mountain stronghold,
and scattering them pcllmcll In every
direction that thoy could run and mako
good their escape. Wo captured two of
their mountain guns, several rifles and
a lot of ammunition, besides killing
and wounding a great many of them
with our Incessant volleys of bullets
"After this engagement our outfit,
the 11th Cavalry, returned, while I was
brought to Santa Mesa hospital from
an attack of sunstroke The regiment
remained at Camp Aloa a few days and
then removed to Paslg on the south
lines, whero It will no doubt soon be
engaged In another Bcrap, while I
must lie hero In this detested hospital.
Well, John, I did not escnpo scot frco
in tho fight, having received a slight
wound In tho left leg at San Mateo.
"I believe if I wero to choose be
tween capture by tho niggers nnd death
by a bullet, I should unhesitatingly
prefer the latter, for tho niggers use
tho American captives In tho most bar
barous manner, torturing them to
death In many cases by fire or hack
ing them unmercifully to pieces. A
caso llko tbe latter happened only a
day or two ago, when flvo captives
wero discovered by their comrades
butchered in tho most horrible rnd
