Emlllo Agulnaldo also ordered that
four hundred men be sent him as soon
as possible, saying that the bearer of
the letter would lead these men to
where Agulnaldo was.
Gen. Funston secured the corres
pondence of Agulnaldo's agent and
laid hla plans accordingly. Some
months previously ho had captured the
camp of the Insurgent Gen. lacuna,
Incidentally obtaining Lacuna's seal,
official papers, and a quantity of
Signed correspondence. Fiom this
material two letters were constructed,
ostensibly from Lacuna to Agutnaldo.
