Mr McArdle

Dear Sir

You no doubt think I have


forgotten you. My wife & myself


have both been sick & it has


been impossible for me to go out


to the battle ground before now.


The distance s from Houstons Camp


[to] the Soldiers Graves is 155 steps


which [is] suposed [sic] to be yards.


From the Graves to where Houston


formed lines of battle to where


the Mexicans were when they


comenced [sic] fireing [sic] (which is about


the same as to Habermehl's house).


425 steps from Houstons Camp


to the Graves you might call


an air line & from them


Houston formed line of battle. (The same


to where the Mexicans comenced [sic] fireing [sic]
