Although he Imposed great liardshliis on his men. he Invariably shared their lot cheerfully. Thirteen Americans, including thte-e of licers were wounded In tho engagement at San Alateo, where Gen. L.iwtou was kill ed. Captain Preckenrldge's wound Is not ' dancerous although tho bullet penetrated his arm and side. It Is estimated that tho Insurgents num bered .7)0 and that half of them were arm ed with rllle. The Am-ricans numbered 1CI), but the command had been much de pleted by sickness. The wagon train found 'he roads Impas sable and was obliged to return. 1 The Insurgents retreated to the north east leaving six dead. They hnvo other forces near Tnytay.
