Los Robles, Nicaragua,
28 March 1928.

PATROL REPORT:

     I left Los Robles at 0830, March 27, 1928, with Lieutenant Piper and 24 enlisted, Marine Corps, and proceeded via SAN ESTEBAN, TOMAYUNCA, BOCADERO [Embocadero], to GUALE, and return.

     It was learned that the herd of cattle seen by plane on Sunday, belonged to Serapio Palacio [Serapio Palacios] of Jinotega, and were being moved from the plains to his potero [potrero] near BOCADERO. This information was furnished by the Jefe de Cantonment [juez de canton] of LOS CEDRAS [Los Cedros] (near BROCADERO), and by two other habitants, who stated that the plans [planes] flew low over this herd Sunday, while it was passing north through TOMAYUNCA. Serapio Palacio's presence in Jinotega was reported so he could not be questioned, but the herd was observed by the undersigned grazing in the proteras near BROCADERO.

     It was reported to me that two different inhabitants that about eight SANDINISTAS foraged SANTA MARIA VALLEY on 25 March.The people at GUALE, which is a coffee finca, stated that this was not true, but I am inclined to believe that the people at this finca are sympathizers and were giving false information, the western end of the PANTASMA VALLEY is called SANTA MARIA as far east as GUALE.

     The road to GUALE is in very good condition at present, being practically dry to the YALI divide, and passable for pack animals on the north slope. It has improved very materially in the past few weeks.

     Inquiry at GUALE elicited the information that the CAMINO REAL to QUILALI passes straight north across the valley, thence across another range to the Coco River.

Summary & Notes:

   More reconnaissance and mapping; Hunter, Piper, Rockey all exploring the same zones.
   Serapio Palacios's herd of cattle: air report of Sunday, March 25, has not been found, but similar reports of "suspicious" concentrations of livestock during this same week on Air-Docs page,
here.
   Small local bands of EDSN reported in Santa María Valley (western end of Pantasma Valley, as far west as Guale), a zone that remained an EDSN hotspot till the end of the war.

   False information suspected from natives sympathetic to EDSN.
