CATBALOGAN COMMANDER TO LUKBAN, JANUARY 20, 1901
[Original in Spanish. D. S. P. I. R., 891.12 ]
JANUARY 20, 1901.
To the General and Politico-Military Commander of this Province.
I have the honor to inform you that this morning about eight o'clock,
the local chief of Kaloiga, Sr. Feliciano Figueroa, arrived here and
showed me the attached statement of what will be done in that town,
which is occupied by the enemy, and at the same time he told me that
the people en masse would rise up against the detachment recently
posted in the said town by the enemy; the force consists of about 200
men and officers, for which reason I inquire of you whether I am to
raise some guerrillas to go to that point. I am only awaiting superior
orders to go there with such number of guerrillas as you may consider
I have the honor to communicate the foregoing to you, for your
God preserve you many years.
