FIGHTING IS MIGHTY HOT For Two Days Americans Battle Under Difficulties Snipers Pick Off Many Custom House Taken. "Get the Mexican or he'll get you," is what Frank King, son of Mr. and Mrs. James King, who live on Ninth street in East Moline, says, and in the following letter written to his parents from Vera Cruz, he .gives some inter esting facts concerning the Mexican situation, and a good description of the battle of Vera Cruz: Vera Cruz, May 1, 114. Dear Par ents: Of course, you have heard what we have been doing down here. I am, still alive, but - I did not expect that much when we landed. As you know, we landed here to pre vent the importation of ammunition for the Mexicans. We are now holding a German ship with a. cargo of 150,000 rounds of ammunition,. 145 machine guns and 50 field pieces: for Huerta. Before we entered Vera Cruz our of fiers sent word to the Mexican general that .we were going to take the custom house. He replied that we could come ahead, as he would not try to stop us. So we did not really expect to fight. But this general and his troops left the city. No sooner was he gone -than another Mexican officers passed out the words, "Long live Mexico." Then the fighting began. Snipers Are Busy. As we entered the city we were fired upon from, all sides end from above. Hundreds of men were hidden behind second story windows and upon roofs, firing upon us as w-e marched. Had these people been better shots, many more cf our boys would now be dead. For two days the fighting was migh ty hot. The bunch I was with had two field pieces and one machine gun, an J we tried to do our duty. Several times I thought that I would never write home again. Believe me, I am root so keen abou getting into another battle. When you hear the bullets whistling around ?oi and can't make out just where they come from, you get kind of nervous. Still you do not mind it much after the first hour. You realize then that it i get the Mexican or he will get you. Your son. . FRANK.
