After a long conversationwith the commandant, I obtained permission to go the next day toGeneral Rolor, who commanded a division of the rebels on this sidethe capital.

We were this time, as on all former occasions,much surprised at the little notice, or rather none whatever, whichwas taken of many things, the use of which must have been evidentto the natives.
