Much information hans also been

says it would be impossible for Ad

Many of our officers are anmazed, as
they have looked for resistance to

attempting to larras5 our flanks, as
the columns moved on through a
natural amubuscading country.
Apparently, General Linares pro
fers to placo faith in the defenses of
the city and intends to make it "latst

only a few-hold to theory that he
does not, porpose fighting at all.
