To the footmen at this point, you
must not expect them. If they are
marched off you may rely upon
it that not one, woman or child
will remain in this place[,] and
they have no provisions to take
with them on a march, nor have
they baggage or transportation
for a march!

            This moment from a source
on which I rely, I have heard that
Juan Galan, was with the Indians
this last six months[.] The Kicapoos [sic]-
Cados, [sic] and some Priaras [?] Indians
the Tawakanies [sic] particularly are
to assist the [M]exicans. That they
are promised nothing but money
from the Mexicans at Matamoros
