PROVISIONAL BATTALION
LOS ROBLES, NICARAGUA.
28 February 1928.

PATROL REPORT No. 4.
 
     1.   The undersigned with the 47th Company 3 Officers and seventy four enlisted, left camp at 8:30 am, Feb.26,1928, and returned at 10 am, Feb.28,1928. Route Pass Real [Paso Real]-Tomayunca-4 miles south of Guala [Guale]- thence return to Tomayunca- thence west to Moncotal [Mancotal] and to Northwest moving along south slope of the hills - Llangue and return Miles covered about 48 miles.
 
     2.   In all the area covered there was no sign of bandit activity. Inhabitants questioned all along the route: not friendly, guarded, would not give information, seemingly pro-bandit.
 
     3.   Route to Pass Real, about five (5) miles, flat, than [then] rolling for about five (5) miles beyond Tomayunca. Comparatively good going and passable to bull carts. Then higher hills with trails boggy and deep mud. On main trail toward Guala-Pantasma the pack animals were halted and a part of the patrol moved ahead. Trail at this point was practically impassable for pack animals, and possible with great difficulty for land riding animals. There is a network of trails in the country south of the mountains. The people all claim that there is but one trail leading across the mountains, and that, the one described above.
 
     4.   Effort was made to buy rations enroute. It would have been possible to get a beef, and coffee was purchased by buying small amounts here and there. It is not possible to buy beans, corn, sugar, or other components even in small quantities, except at a small store in Pass Real.
 
     5.   A diagrammatic sketch will be turned in later.

/s/ R. S. Hunter,
Captain, U.S.Marine Corps.

   78 Marines out for two days in the coffee highlands NE of Jinotega.
