MUY MUY DETACHMENT, MUY MUY, NICARAGUA., 8 MAY, 1928.

From: The Commanding Officer.
To: The Commanding Officer, 3rd Bn., 5th Regt., 2nd Brig
USMC,MATAGALPA, NICARAGUA.
Subject: Report of patrol of May 4, 1928.
Reference: Par. 2 (b) Orders 80-EMR-wib, Hdq.3rd Bn., dated 2 May, 1928.

    1.   In accordance with the above reference I proceeded, on 4 May,1928, to SAIZ-EL CAMERON (Ham map) and Vicinity, reconnoitering that entire area and returning to MUY MUY 8 May, 1928.

     2.   There are no outlaws nor signs of outlaws in the area reconnoitered. Should they attempt to enter this territory, there are the following routes (see attached sketch):

1. From TUMA district-South via PANCASON MTS. [Pancasan]-across SAN RAMON-MATIGUAS ROAD-IZQUERIN-MUY MUY.
 
2. RIO MUY MUY VIEJO-CACAO-MUY MUY VIEJO-MATIGUAS PASO REAL or PIEDRA PINTADA-MUY MUY.
 
3. From SAN PEDRO district- One road only, via GUANA-GUANA-RIO BLANCO-AIGUAS-to-SAIZ-then-MATIGUAS or LA SUIZ.
 
4. By river to BOCA DE DAIZ (BEY LA CRUZ), then via PLATANAR-LA-CORONA-LOS TANQUES to MUY MUY or from the mouth of the MURRA to COMOAPA [Camoapa] and BOACO.

The above are the main routes. The following friendly natives appear willing to help our forces and have volunteered to bring advance information of any hostile movements. I believe them to be reliable since all are property owners and have tangible assets at stake:

ANTONIO MENDOZA of ANSUELO --- Conservative
PABLO BIDAURRE OF MUY MUY VIEJO   "
JACINTO BRENES of CACAO           "
GERONIMO BRENES of  "
OCTAVIANO GUTIERES of MATIGUAS Liberal owener of LAS LOMAS - LA ARGENTINA and EL SIMIENTOS ranches.
DIONISIO GONZALEZ of SAIZ    Conservative
LAZARUS FERNANDEZ of LAS LIMAS    "
EXETIEN LOPEZ of PAIGUAS          "
MIGUEL ESPINOSA of SAIZ           "
POLOCARPE GONZALES of LA SUIZ     "

The location of the houses of the above men practically forbids entrance of any hostile force into this territory without our being immediately notified. I believe that occasional small patrols to their haciendas will be effective in maintaining friendly relations. In MUY MUY, SIMEON, MATAMORA, Inspector of Haciendas, and previously a guide for Capt. Livingston, Capt. Holmes, and other americans, is an excellent source of information and has proven his reliability, according [ --- ]

The notes of sketch of RIO GRANDE disembarkation points.

Distances: MUY MUY to MATIGUAS- 18 miles
MUY MUY to LAS LOMAS-10 miles
MUY MUY to LA SUIZ- 20 miles
MATIGUAS to LA TRINIDAD (SAIZ) -
16 miles.
LA TRINIDAD to LA SUIZ-15 miles (trail nearly impassable between BALSAMO and LA SUIZ-better to take LIMAS TRAIL).
LA TRINIDAD TO PAIGUAS - 6 miles
PAIGUAS TO GUANAGUANA- 8 miles
GUANA-GUANA to SAN PEDRO- 63 miles
LA TRINIDAD TO BEY LA CRUZ- 15 miles
BEY LA CRUZ TO COMOAPA 36 miles

At SAN PEDRO, the RIO GRANDE flowing north[--st] meets the TUMA flowing SE on the E. side of the junction is CRUZ-CRUZ, a group of 3 or 4 houses. There are no roads east from this point. All traffic is via the river and the next settlement is LA CRUZ DEL RIO GRANDE, an American banana plantation. Between the, GUILIKITO and SAN PEDRO are two more rivers, the BILAUPE and the CERAINA.
