bears upon the Monterey road and the cleared ground in front of the
works. This is manned by Captain Jones' company. Next and last
is a smooth 12-pounder siege piece, planted just to the left of the Mon-

I have for the two rifled brass 6-pounders 200 rounds of ammunition
each and about 75 rounds for each of the other guns, with the exception
