Sy woke us in the early morning with a report that explosions could be heard coming from the direction of Babylon. As we strained to see over the horizon we could make out the glow from the same. Then the many camps far below on the plain stirred to life.
We watched with interest the goings on throughout the day.
Moglen’s outpost on these heights packed up and descended down to the redoubt.
Another group operating from the redoubt, labored all the daylight hours, and succeeded in carrying the crate half way up to the high place.
Before the sun set Reuben and his team arrived, guided by Sy’s men sent down for that purpose.
Elijah and I made ready.
