LOS ROBLES, NICARAGUA.
22 March 1928.

PATROL REPORT NO. 7.
 
     The undersigned, with Captain Hunter, Lieutenant Piper and twenty-seven men of the Forty-Seventh Company, left Las Robles at 8:00 a.m., 20 March for Cuchillas for patrol and to secure topographic data. Route: PASA REAL-TOMAYUNCE-CUCHILLAS [Paso Real - Tumayunca - Las Cuchillas]. The patrol camped for the nights of 20-21 March on the North bank of the TUMA river, north of ESPERANZA. On the morning of the 21st a small detail was left at camp and the patrol continued on foot to the northeast, to the top of CUCHILLA MOUNTAIN RANGE. From local information LA VIRGEN was about four miles beyond.

     Near the main trail leading to GUALE the country is rather thickly settled. Beyond, two miles east of GUALE trail the country becomes rough and is very sparsely settled. There are about six small coffee plantations in the area covered, all owned by Nicaraguans. A road passable with difficulty by bullcarts is maintained to a point about six miles east of the GUALE trail. Beyond that point the trails are all very bad. The CAMINO REAL running north from the TUMA section to LA VIRGEN is wide but passable with the greatest difficulty to pack animals, because of mud and fallen trees. The patrol covered about five miles along this trail, and over this entire route the trail was very boggy with mud, a foot or more deep. The trails are so rough and slippery that travel at night is practically impossible, and very slow and difficult during the day

     One ANDREAS CIRAUS, owner of the finca LA VENCIDORO [La Vencedora], talked very freely, give considerable detail of the passage of Sandino forces in February. According to him no bandit forces have operated in, or passed through the area near his place recently. The inhabitants interviewed were reticent and no indications of bandit activities could be discovered. Other trails from the TUMA section to LA VIRGEN and trails from TUMA to PENA BLANCA pass to the east of the area covered by the patrol. Recent bandit bands which operated recently in Tuma apparently moved quite far to the east.

Summary & Notes:

   Again, gives a good sense of the far eastern frontier of settlement: east of Guale there's hardly anyone living in the area:  "very sparsely settled."
   Foot-deep mud, boggy, very difficult trails, ("rough, slippery, slow, difficult"), even for someone as experienced as Rockey.
   Local inhabitants "reticent"; no useful information on EDSN.

   Six small coffee plantations in the area, all owned by Nicaraguans.
