CORINTO RANCH, NICARAGUA.
16 May, 1928.

From: 2nd Lieut. D.K. Claude, U.S.M.C.
To: District Commander, Matagalpa, Nic.
Via: The Commanding Officer, 45th Company.
Subject: Patrol Report, CORINTO - TUMA.

     1.   A foot patrol consisting of 2nd Lieut. D.K. Claude, fifteen enlisted marines and two pack animals cleared CORINTO for TUMA 12 May, 1928, and returned CORINTO 14 May, 1928.

     Map Used:  MATAGALPA-JINOTEGA District, Apr. 7, Quinn. (Note: This map was found to be of no practical value on this patrol, either for estimating distances or for locating trails. Neither VOLCAN GRANDE nor CABRADON are shown. The former is a ranch house belonging to Nicholas Pineda [Nicolas Pineda, Nicolás Piñeda] about two miles east of LA TRAMPA and the latter a settlement of a few native shacks about three miles east of CABRADON. Both are situated on the main trail CORINTO-TUMA. COYOLAR is an area extending about three miles along the trail east from CABRADON. There are about twelve scattered shacks in this area. The map "Area vicinity Marine Post TUMA" shows the trail LA TRAMPA-TUMA in its proper proportion).

     Weather:  Clear.

     Attitude of inhabitants:  Friendly, busily engaged in agricultural pursuits, tending cattle, and burning out pastures.

     Condition of trail:  Dry, mountainous. From its appearance this trail was used last rainy season and will probably be passible the coming season, however difficult.

     Camp sites:  LA TRAMPA about five and a quarter miles from CORINTO- a two story ranch house belonging to Serrappio Pallaccio [Serapio Palacios] of JINOTEGA- will shelter about forty men. The house itself is not easy to defend but there are advantageous alternative positions in the near vicinity. The hillsides offer an excellent temporary camp site for about three hundred men. A large mountain stream flowing through the position affords a good supply of water. Pasturage for one hundred animals. The ranch owner has left orders with the caretaker, Manuel Lopez, to render every assistance to marine patrols.

     PAOULA ARAUS: [Paula Arauz]  This is a farmhouse situated on the end of a ridge about seven and a half miles from TUMA and affords a view of the surrounding country and trails. Water supply from mountain stream at foot of the ridge about five hundred yards from the house. House affords shelter for about twenty men. Native food available in small quantities. French bread for sale in quantities sufficient for small patrols.

     Bandits:  No information pertaining to the location or activities of bandits could be obtained.

/s/ D. K. Claude
