Mexican Troop
First (
Troopers of the Tenth Unitec
vancing in Battle Forma
Gomez?Capt. J5oy<
San Antonio, Texas, June .25.?
Mexican troops fired the first shot on j
the troopers of the Tenth United)
States cavalry at Carrizal, but not1
until the American force, fearing an j
ambush, had advanced in .battle for- j
mation, according to a letter written j
on the day of the fight by Capt. Lewis |
Morey, commanding K troop of the
Tenth and forwarded to Gen. Funston
by Gen. Pershing tonight.
Capt. Morey wrote the letter at
9:15 a. m. June 21 while hiding in a
liole about 2,000 yards from the scene
of the battle. Capt. Morey was wound- j
ed and had another wounded man
and three unwounded troopers with
!him. The three unwounded men were
picked up by a detachment under
Lieut. Henry A. Meyers, Jr., of the
Tenth cavalry, and the letter brought
to Gen. Pershing today.
Morey Left to Die.
Capt. Morey was left to die upon
the desert from thirst and his
wounds. The men abandoned him at
his own order. The three unwound
ed men had carried him, according to
their stories to Lieut. Meyers, from
the hole where he had hidden and
made their way nearly two miles!
from the battlefield.
They were forced to stop and Capt.
jMorey, believing himself hopelessly
wounded, ordered them to leave
him. They also thought him about to j
die from loss of blood and thirst and !
obeyed.
The stories of the rescued men to
*Lieut. Meyers were very vague about j
the details of the fight, according to :
Gen. Pershing's report to Gen. Fun-1
ston.
Capt. Morey's letter told of the join-,
ing of Troop C under Capt. Charles
T. Boyd and Troop K under his own
command at Ojo Santo Domingo June
20 and the advance together towards
i
Carrizal June 21. i
He arrived in an op/n field a mile J
from Carrizal at 6:30 a. m. There
they halted and Capt. Boyd sent a
courier into Carrizal asking permisv
f
sion of Gen. Felix Gomez to enter the
town, saying he was going to Villa
Ahumada. Gomez replied that he J
"would not -be allowed to enter the j
town ,but might make a detour abound j
it. j
[Fearing that they were about to be j
trapped by the Mexicans who had |
sallied out from the town during the
parley, the American troops deployed
in battle formation, mounted and
moved forward. The Mexicans then
opened fire. Capt. Boyd ordered his
men to dismount and returned the
fire, the engagement lasting about an
hour.
Both Troops Advance.
Both C and K troops advanced, the
former to the position occupied by a
Mexican machine gun and the latter
closing in to one side. K troop also
was attacked from the flank, while a ,
detachment of (Mexicans from the
town reached the rear of the (American
line and stampeded the led j
\
horses. The Mexicans succeeded in
checking the American advance and
the Americans first were forced to
la.ll back and finally to scatter each
for himself.
Following is the text of Capt.
Morey's letter:

the Mexicans opened fire and a strong
one before we rired a shot; then we
opened up. They did not run but
to make a long account short, after
about an hour's fight, in which .bota
troops had advanced, C troop to
position of 'Mexican machine gun and
K troop closing in slightly to the
left, we were very 'busy on ti.e right
keeping off a flank attack. A group
of Mexicans left town, went around
our rear and our led horses left at
a gallop.
"At about 9 o'clock one platoon of
Troop K, which was 011 our right, fell
back. Sergeant said he could not stay
there. Both platoons fell back about
1,000 yards to the west and then, together
with some men of Troop C,
who were there, these men scattered.
"I was slightly wounded. Capt.
Boyd, a man told me, was killed.
Nothing was seen of Lieut. Adair after
fight started, so man I saw stated.
I am hiding in a hole 2,000 yards
from field and have one other wounded
man and three men with me.
(Signed) "Morey,
"Captain."
In transmitting Capt. Morey's letter
Gen. Pershing said:
"The three men referred to by
Morey are the three men who had the
above message in their possession.
The wounded man was from C troop,
and was shot through the knee. Lieut.
Meyers reports that the three men
were rather vague as to where they
Iiad left Capt. Morey, but stated that
on the night of the 21st day had ear
ried him two miles; that Morey became
weak, could not go further, and
told them to leave him. They thought
he was dying from loss of blood and
lack of water. Meyer reconnoitred
20 miles east of Santa Maria, but
found nothing:. Out of grain and forage,
horses in bad shape, he had to
return."
Gen. Funston issued no orders to
Gen. Pershing tonight.
It was observed at headquarters
that Capt. Morey's note was addressed
to his immediate superior, the
commanding officer at Ojo Federico,

sent the letter to the commanding officer
at Ojo Federico, he in turn forwarding
it to Gen. Pershing. This
would explain the fact that the latter
apparently was not delivered to
Gen. Pershing by Lieut. Meyers on j
his return with the stragglers found
at San Luis ranch last night.
Capt. Lewis Sidney Morey was. the
son of the Rev. L. H. iMorey of San
Antonio. He was born in Pittsford,
N. Y., in 1875, and spent his early
youth in Minnesota, coming to Texas !
with his family in 1892. Ke was grad- j
uated from West Point in 1900 and'
served as lieutenant and captain in j
both the Tenth and Twelfth cavalry
regiments. iHe was married in 1903 to
iMiss Irene Halm of Austin, Texas.
