Santa Anna has been VERY ill. For 3 weeks, the troops have been drilling and practicing here at Santillo. They are getting ready for war. They are almost ready. There is about to be a Grand Review before we move on to Texas.

I have met many prairie dog friends here. Two of them plan to come with me to San Antonio. I have made room for them in my hidden secret place under my wagon.

Find out about on the trail with Pedro.
