Camp Santa Mesa , Manila , P. I . Sun
day , January ist , 1899. Friend George :
I received your letter of November 16 , a
few days ago , and was glad to hear from
you. I also received the package of
We are camping in tents about four or
five miles south of Manila , just one-half
mile north of the Pasig river , in what
was formerly used as a rice field. When
we came out here the mud was nearly
shoe mouth deep , but by ditching and
draining we have made a pretty nice
camp. Our camp is situated on a little
hill from which we can get a good view
of the suriounding country.
The natives as a rule , are very friend
ly. I wore 013- last pair of shoes out
about a Meek ago and have not been
able to get a new pair ; it is the first time
in my life that I ever had to go bare
footed in the winter , but then I do not
suffer much from the cold
Tomorrow is to be field day for our
regiment , and I guess we will have u
pretty good time. We have a canteen
or saloon with our regiment. Beer sells
at 2octs Mexican a glass , and a pretty
good drink it makes in this country ,
providing a man does not take too much.
Some of the boys in my company slipped
a keg of beer into camp , last night , and
things were made pretty livelv for a
while. The people of Broken Bow and
vicinity sent 10 mv company a purse of
$75.00 dollar * to be used to celebrate
Christmas , but we dM not yet it in time
for Christmas , so we thought wevotild
eat a New Year dinner \\nh it ; mid a
nice dinner we had , too U'r invited
Colonel Stotsenberg , MHJ > r Alult rd and
Chaplain Maley to dinner find I think
they enjoyed themselves The second
night we were in this camp we ot ordeis
to hold ourselves in readiness for a cal
to arms at any time. It seemed that the
natives were going to attack us , but i
was just a scare , and since then every
thing has been perfectly quiet. Nearly
all of our sick men were sent home on
the steamship Ohio ; among them WHS B
Cecil Jack. Our recruits are with us am
we don't have to go on guard quite so
often as we did before they came
The Washington boys landed in Ma
nila about a month ago. Steve Belles
was over to see Kinghorn and mysel
and took supper with us ; he is just about
as fat as ever. He is trying to get trans
ferred to the Nebraska regiment. I saw
Swipes , a day or so ago , and read your
letter to him. We call him Friday.
He is a good soldier ; nearly every bov
in the regiment knows him. Tell Par
sons for me not to do quite so much
talking. Tell Joe Kubic hello and Rufus ,
too. From camp we can get a good
view of the mountains off to the north
and east. One of the boys in company
C , Nebraska regiment , was drowned in
the Pasig river , about a week ago. I
did not learn his name. Well , as I can
not think of anything more to write ,
[ will bring this scribbling to a close.
Eloping to hear from you soon I remain ,
Your friend , HARRY C. STEERS , Co. M ,
ManilaJanuary ist , 1899 Dear friend :
ilarry is writing , and here in the tent
the weather is hotter than any place in
Nebraska in August. Here it is New
Year day and I am not swearing yet ;
jut would if I get much hotter. We
lave to dress or rather undress for this
cind of weather. We wear thin under
clothes and very seldom coats or shirts
except on drill and that is in the morn
ng and evening , so we lie around as
cool as we can. We are expecting orders
any time to load for home once more
most any time now. We had them
once , but General Otis said he couldn't
spare us. But he will have to some day
iretty soon , I think , as the tiouble is
over , I guess , as far as the natives are
concerned ; any how we hear so many
rumors around camp that we wont know
when we get home until we are there ,
and the sooner the quicker. We ere all
well and have excellent health for so
warm a climate. We can eat any tiiwe
and sleep all the time if it wasn't so hot
or us. Well , excuse haste and poor
vriting , and I will tell you more in half
in hour when I see you than I could
vriteifl had four hours to do this in.
Jye , bye , in F. II. and C. I remain
our friend. G. F. KINGHORN , Co. M ,

Dangers of the Grip.
The greatest danger from La Grippe
is of its resulting in pneumonia. If
reasonable care is used , however , and
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy taken , all
langer will be avoided. Among the tens
of thousands who have used this remedy
ror la grippe we have yet to learn of a
single case having resulted in pneumonia
which shous conclusively that this rem
edy is a certain preventive of that dan-
jerous disease. It will cure la grippe in
ess time than any other treatment. It
s pleasant and safe to take. For sale by

remedy as a specific for la grippe , and
